With the URL Content Redirection feature, URL content can be redirected from the client machine to a remote desktop or application (client-to-agent redirection), or from a remote desktop or application to the client machine (agent-to-client redirection).

For example, you can click a link in the native Microsoft Word application on the client and the link opens in the remote Internet Explorer application, or you can click a link in the remote Internet Explorer application and the link opens in a native browser on the client machine. Any number of protocols can be configured for redirection, including HTTP, mailto, and callto.

The supported browsers in which you can type or click a URL and have that URL redirected are Internet Explorer 9, 10, and 11.

Note:

This feature does not work for links clicked from inside Windows 10 universal apps, including the Microsoft Edge Browser.

To use agent-to-client redirection, a Horizon administrator must enable URL Content Redirection during Horizon Agent installation. For information, see the Setting Up Virtual Desktops in Horizon 7 or Setting Up Published Desktops and Applications in Horizon 7 documents.

A Horizon administrator must also configure settings that specify how Horizon Client redirects URL content from the client system to a remote desktop or application, or how Horizon Agent redirects URL content from a remote desktop or application to the client machine. For configuration information, see the Configuring Remote Desktop Features in Horizon 7 document.
