You can update Horizon Client online.
By default, a green icon appears on the Options menu to indicate that a new Horizon Client version is available.
During the update process, by default, you can select or deselect the Check for updates and show badge notification check box to specify whether Horizon Client checks for updates automatically and displays the new version notification.
You can control the behavior of the online update feature by configuring the following group policy settings.

- Allow user to skip Horizon Client update, which controls the Skip button.
