You can use many Mac functions with remote applications.

  • When you run a remote application, its icon appears in the Dock. You can maximize a minimized remote application by clicking its icon in the Dock.

  • You can keep, open, and quit a remote application from its context menu in the Dock. If you select Keep in Dock, the remote application icon remains in the Dock, even after you close all application windows.

  • In Horizon Client 3.1 and later, you can launch a remote application by clicking its icon in the Dock.

  • In Horizon Client 4.0 and later, you can open local files in remote applications and run remote applications from the Applications folder on your client system. To enable these features, see Share Access to Local Folders and Drives.

  • In Horizon Client 3.2 and later, flashing Windows taskbar items are forwarded to Horizon Client. For example, if the remote application is an IM client and you receive a new message, a flashing red dot appears on the IM client's icon in the Dock.

  • You can start voice dictation, minimize, and zoom a remote application from the menu bar.

  • You can use the Expos√© feature to see open remote applications, and you can press Command-Tab to switch between open remote applications.

  • You can use standard OS X keyboard shortcuts to interact with remote applications. For example, you can press Command-W to close an individual application window and Command-S to save the current file. You can also use standard OS X keyboard shortcuts to copy, cut, and paste text between your OS X applications and remote applications. In Horizon Client 3.2 and later, you can customize keyboard shortcut mappings. See Configure Keyboard Shortcut Mappings.

  • In Horizon Client 3.1 and later, if a remote application creates a Windows System Tray item, that item appears in the notification area on the menu bar on your Mac client system. You can interact with this item from the notification area on your Mac in the same way that you would interact with it from the System Tray on a Windows system.

    Note:

    When you re-click a redirected System Tray item in the notification area on your Mac, the context menu does not disappear.
