The DPI Synchronization feature ensures that the DPI (dots per inch) setting in a remote desktop or published application matches the client machine's DPI setting.

If you want to adjust the resolution manually, you can turn off the Allow display scaling option in Horizon Client and select a resolution. For more information, see Adjust the Screen Resolution for Remote Desktops and Published Applications.

A Horizon administrator can disable the DPI Synchronization feature.

If DPI synchronization is disabled, display scaling is used. The Display Scaling feature scales the remote desktop or published application appropriately.

Following are tips for using the DPI Synchronization feature.

  • If you change the DPI setting on the client system, but the DPI setting does not change in the remote desktop, you might need to log out and log in again to make Horizon Client aware of the new DPI setting on the client system.
  • If you start a remote session on a client system that has a DPI setting of more than 100 percent, and then use the same session on another client system that has a different DPI setting of more than 100 percent, you might need to log out and log back in to the remote session on the second client system to make DPI synchronization work on the second client system.
