You can turn on the ability to open local files in published applications directly from the local file system.
If you select a local file and press Control-click, the Open With menu lists the available published applications. You can also open a local file by dragging it into the published application window or Dock icon.
If you set a published application as the default application for files that have a certain file extension, all files on your local file system that have that file extension are registered with the server. You can also turn on the ability to run published applications from the Applications folder.
To open local files in published applications, a Horizon administrator must enable the client drive redirection feature. This task involves enabling the agent Client Drive Redirection option in Horizon Agent. It can also include setting policies to control the client drive redirection behavior. For more information, see the Configuring Remote Desktop Features in Horizon document.
