Procedure

  1. Select VMware Horizon Client > Preferences and click Keyboard & Mouse.
  2. Select the Mouse Shortcuts tab.
  3. Modify the mouse shortcut mappings.

    Action

    Modify a mouse shortcut mapping

    Double-click the mapping and make your changes. Click OK to save your changes.

    Disable a mouse shortcut mapping

    Deselect the On check box next to the mouse shortcut mapping. When you disable a mouse shortcut mapping, Horizon Client does not send the mouse shortcut to the remote desktop or application.

    Enable a mouse shortcut mapping

    Select the On check box next to the mouse shortcut mapping. When you enable a mouse shortcut mapping, Horizon Client sends the mouse shortcut to the remote desktop or application.

    Restore the default settings

    Click Restore Defaults. Any changes that you made to the default mouse shortcut mappings are deleted and the default mappings are restored.

  4. Close the Preferences dialog box.

    Your mouse shortcut mapping changes take effect immediately. You do not need to restart open remote desktops or applications to see the changes take effect.
