With the local zoom feature, you can pinch your fingers together and apart on a touchscreen to zoom in and out inside a remote desktop or published application.

On operating systems that support touch input, zoom in and zoom out on a touch screen work only if you enable the local zoom feature. Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Windows Server 2012, and Windows Server 2016 support touch input.


  1. Connect to a remote desktop or published application.
  2. Tap the Option button in the floating menu in the remote desktop or published application window and tap Setting.
  3. Expand the Advanced section and tap to toggle the Local Zoom option to On or Off.
