You can use many Mac functions with published applications.

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

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

  • You can open a published application by clicking its icon in the Dock.

  • You can open local files in published applications and run published applications from the Applications folder on the client system. To enable these features, see Share Access to Local Folders and Drives with Client Drive Redirection.

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

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

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

  • You can use standard Mac keyboard shortcuts to interact with published 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 Mac keyboard shortcuts to copy, cut, and paste text between applications on the Mac and published applications. You can customize keyboard shortcut mappings. See Create Keyboard Shortcut Mappings.

  • If a published application creates a Windows System Tray item, that item appears in the notification area on the menu bar on the Mac client system. You can interact with this item from the notification area on the Mac in the same way that you interact with it from the System Tray on a Windows system.

    Note:

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