If you drag a file or folder between the client system and a remote desktop, the file or folder appears in the file system on the target system. If you drag a file and drop it into an open application, such as Notepad, the text appears in the application. If you drag a file into a new email message, the file becomes an attachment to the email message.
By default, dragging and dropping from the client system to remote desktops and published applications is enabled, and dragging and dropping from remote desktops and published applications to the client system is disabled. A Horizon administrator can control the drag and drop direction by configuring group policy settings.
Dragging and dropping files, folders, and file contents requires that the client drive redirection feature is installed in Horizon Agent. The client drive redirection feature is installed by default. For complete information about configuring the drag and drop feature, including feature requirements, see the Configuring Remote Desktop Features in Horizon document for your VMware Horizon version.
