The DPI Synchronization feature ensures that the DPI setting in a remote session matches the client machine's DPI setting. When you start a new remote session, Horizon Agent sets the DPI value in the session to match the DPI value of the client machine. The DPI Synchronization feature cannot change the DPI setting for active remote sessions.

For virtual desktops, the DPI Synchronization feature is supported on the following guest operating systems:

  • 32-bit or 64-bit Windows 7

  • 32-bit or 64-bit Windows 8.x

  • 32-bit or 64-bit Windows 10

  • Windows Server 2008 R2 configured as a desktop

  • Windows Server 2012 R2 configured as a desktop

  • Windows Server 2016 configured as a desktop

For published desktops and published applications, the DPI Synchronization feature is supported on the following RDS hosts:

  • Windows Server 2012 R2

  • Windows Server 2016

The DPI Synchronization feature requires Horizon Agent 7.0.2 or later and Horizon Client 4.7 or later. The DPI Synchronization feature is not available if you use Horizon Client 4.7 with Horizon Agent 7.0 or 7.0.1, or an earlier (pre-4.7) version of Horizon Client with Horizon Agent 7.0.2 or later.

The DPI Synchronization feature is enabled by default. You can disable the DPI Synchronization feature and manually adjust the resolution. For information, see Adjusting the Screen Resolution for Remote Desktops and Applications.

A Horizon administrator can disable the DPI Synchronization feature by disabling the Horizon Agent DPI Synchronization group policy setting. You must log out and log in again to make the configuration change take effect. For more information, see the Configuring Remote Desktop Features in Horizon 7 document.
