You can use a Touch Bar to interact with remote desktops and published applications. This feature requires macOS Sierra (10.12) or later.

After you connect to a remote desktop, you can use icons on the Touch Bar to perform the following tasks.

  • Disconnect, log out, restart or reset, and send Ctrl+Alt+Delete to the remote desktop.

  • Enter or exit full-screen mode.

  • Bring the desktop and application selection window to the foreground.

  • View a list of all the currently open remote desktops and published applications.

  • Switch to another open remote desktop or published application.

You can add, remove, and reorder the items in the Horizon Client app Touch Bar by selecting VMware Horizon Client > Customize Touch Bar.

Note:

The log out, reset, and restart features are available only if a Horizon administrator has enabled them. If the remote desktop is in exclusive mode, you cannot use the Touch Bar to enter or exit full-screen mode or bring the desktop and application selection window to the foreground.

After you connect to a published application, the following icons appear on the Touch Bar.
