Horizon Client makes it easy to work on remote desktops and published applications from your local client device, giving you on-the-go access from any location. Set the Certificate Checking ModeYour system administrator might ask you to set the certificate checking mode in Horizon Client to make sure that you can successfully connect to a server. At some companies, an administrator might set the certificate checking mode and prevent you from changing it in Horizon Client. Configure Horizon Client to Select a Smart Card CertificateYou can configure a Horizon Client setting to select a local certificate, or the certificate on a smart card, when you connect to a server. If you do not configure this setting, you must manually select a certificate. Connect to a Remote Desktop or Published ApplicationTo connect to a remote desktop or published application, you must provide the name of a server and supply credentials for your user account. Connecting to a Server When Horizon Client StartsAfter you connect to a server for the first time, Horizon Client connects automatically to that server the next time you start Horizon Client. Hide the VMware Horizon Client WindowYou can hide the VMware Horizon Client window after you open a remote desktop or published application. Add Horizon Client to the DockYou can add Horizon Client to the Dock on the Mac client system. Autoconnect to a Remote DesktopYou can configure a server to open a particular remote desktop when you connect to that server. You cannot configure a server to open a published application. Searching for Remote Desktops and Published ApplicationsAfter you connect to a server, the available remote desktops and published applications on that server appear in the desktop and application selection window. You can search for a particular remote desktop or published application by typing in the window. Switch Remote Desktops or Published ApplicationsIf you are connected to a remote desktop, you can switch to another remote desktop.

This feature requires macOS Sierra (10.12) or later. Configure Horizon Client to Forget the Server User Name and DomainBy default, Horizon Client stores the user name and domain that you enter when you log in to a server. For increased security, you can configure Horizon Client so that it never remembers the server user name and domain. Log Off or DisconnectIf you disconnect from a remote desktop without logging off, applications in the remote desktop might remain open. You can also disconnect from a server and leave published applications running. Disconnecting from a ServerAfter you have finished using a remote desktop or published application, you can disconnect from the server.
