In Horizon Client 3.2 and later, you can configure a server to automatically launch a remote desktop when you connect to the server.

About this task

If you are entitled to only one remote desktop on a server, Horizon Client automatically launches that desktop when you connect to the server.

Note:

You cannot configure a server to automatically launch a remote application.

Prerequisites

  2. If prompted, supply your credentials.
  3. Click the Settings button (gear icon) in the upper right corner of the desktop and application selection window.
  4. Select a desktop pool in the left pane of the Settings dialog box.
  5. Select Autoconnect to this desktop.
  6. Close the Settings dialog box to save your changes.

Results

The next time you connect to the server, Horizon Client automatically launches the remote desktop.
