Key Features

VMware Horizon Client for Windows 10 UWP makes it easy to access your remote desktops and published applications for the best possible user experience on the Local Area Network (LAN) or across a Wide Area Network (WAN).

  • Work the way you want to - Use your Windows 10 tablet or smartphone to work on a remote desktop or published application from any location. Support for the VMware Blast display protocol means that your remote desktops and published applications are fast and responsive, regardless of where you are.
  • Simple connectivity - Horizon Client is tightly integrated with Horizon 6 and Horizon 7 for simple setup and connectivity.
  • Multitasking - Switch between Horizon Client and other apps without losing a remote desktop or published application connection.
  • Continuum for Windows 10 Mobile support - Use a Microsoft Display dock to connect your Windows 10 smartphone to an external display and mouse and use Horizon Client just as you would use it on a desktop PC.
  • Secure from any location - At your desk or away from the office, your data is always secure. Access your remote desktop or published application over Wi-Fi or 3G. Your remote desktop or published application is delivered securely to you wherever you are. Enhanced certificate checking is performed on the client device. Horizon Client supports RSA SecurID and RADIUS authentication.

What's New in This Release

  • Use published applications in multi-session mode
    When multi-session mode is enabled for a published application, you can use multiple sessions of the published application when you log on to the server from different client devices. For example, if you open a published application in multi-session mode on client A, and then open the same published application on client B, the published application remains open on client A and a new session of the published application opens on client B.
  • TLSv1.0 is disabled
    TLS v1.0 is no longer supported.
  • VMware Blast selects the optimal transport automatically
    In this release, Horizon Client senses current network conditions and chooses one or more transports to provide the best user experience automatically. In previous Horizon Client versions, you had to select a network condition option to provide the best user experience with VMware Blast.


The user interface and documentation for Horizon Client for Windows 10 UWP are available in English, Japanese, French, German, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Korean, and Spanish.
