You can use keyboards, displays, microphones, and other external devices with remote desktops and published applications. Select Specific Monitors to Display a Remote DesktopIf you have two or more monitors, you can select the monitors on which to display a remote desktop window. For example, if you have two monitors, you can specify that the remote desktop window appears on only one of those monitors. Select Specific Monitors to Display Published ApplicationsIf you have two or more monitors, you can select the monitors on which to display published application windows. For example, if you have two monitors, you can specify that published application windows appear on only one of those monitors. Display a Remote Desktop on a Single Monitor in a Multiple-Monitor SetupIf you have two or more monitors, but you want a remote desktop window to appear on only one monitor, you can configure the remote desktop window to open on a single monitor. Change the Display Mode for a Remote DesktopYou can change the display mode, such as from Fullscreen - All Monitors mode to Fullscreen - Single Monitor mode, before or after you connect to a remote desktop. This feature is not supported for published applications. Use Display ScalingUsers that have poor eyesight or high-resolution screens, such as 4K monitors, generally have scaling enabled by setting the DPI (Dots Per Inch) on the client system to greater than 100 percent. The DPI setting controls the size of the text, apps and icons. A lower DPI setting makes them appear smaller and a higher setting makes them appear bigger. With the Display Scaling feature, remote desktops and published applications support the client system's scaling setting and appear normal-sized rather than very small. Using DPI Synchronization - Win user guideThe DPI Synchronization feature ensures that the DPI setting in a remote desktop or published application matches the client system's DPI setting. Customize the Display Resolution and Display Scaling for a Remote DesktopYou can use Horizon Client to customize the display resolution and display scaling for a remote desktop. The display resolution determines the clarity of the text and images. At higher resolutions, such as 1600 x 1200 pixels, items appear sharper. Display scaling, which is represented as a percentage, increases or decreases the size of text, icons, and navigation elements. Use USB DevicesWith the USB redirection feature, you can use locally attached USB devices, such as thumb flash drives, in a remote desktop or published application. USB Redirection LimitationsThe USB redirection feature has certain limitations. Printing From a Remote Desktop or Published ApplicationWith the VMware Integrated Printing feature, you can print to a network printer or a locally attached printer from a remote desktop or published application. Set Printing Preferences for the VMware Integrated Printing FeatureYou can set printing preferences in a remote desktop for the VMware Integrated Printing feature. With the VMware Integrated Printing feature, you can use local or network printers from a remote desktop without having to install additional printer drivers in the Windows remote desktop. For each printer available through this feature, you can set preferences for data compression, print quality, double-sided printing, color, and other settings. Printing From a Remote Desktop to a Local USB PrinterA USB printer is a printer that is attached to a USB port on the local client system. You can send print jobs to a USB printer attached to the local client system from a remote desktop. Using ScannersWith the scanner redirection feature, you can scan information into remote desktops and published applications with scanners that are connected to the local client system. This feature redirects scanning data with a significantly lower bandwidth than can be achieved by using USB redirection. Using Webcams and MicrophonesWith the Real-Time Audio-Video feature, you can use the local client system's webcam or microphone in a remote desktop or published application. Real-Time Audio-Video is compatible with standard conferencing applications and browser-based video applications. It supports standard webcams, audio USB devices, and analog audio input. When You Can Use a Webcam with the Real-Time Audio-Video Feature If a Horizon administrator has configured the Real-Time Audio-Video feature, you can use a webcam that is built in or connected to the client computer in a remote desktop or published application. You can use the webcam in conferencing applications such as Skype, Webex, or Google Hangouts. Select a Preferred Webcam or Microphone on a Windows Client SystemWith the Real-Time Audio-Video feature, if multiple webcams or microphones are connected to the client system, you can specify which webcam or microphone is preferred by configuring Real-Time Audio-Video settings in Horizon Client. Using Multiple Devices with the Real-Time Audio-Video FeatureIf more than one webcam or microphone is connected to the client computer, and the remote desktop supports multiple device redirection with the Real-Time Audio-Video feature, you can use all the webcams and microphones connected to the client computer in the remote desktop. Select a Preferred Speaker for a Remote DesktopIf multiple speakers are connected to the client system, you can specify which speaker is preferred in a remote desktop. You can also select all the available speakers. Redirecting Serial PortsWith the serial port redirection feature, you can redirect locally connected serial (COM) ports, such as built-in RS232 ports and USB-to-serial adapters. Devices such as printers, bar code readers, and other serial devices can be connected to these ports and used in remote desktops. Improve Mouse Performance in a Remote DesktopIf you use the VMware Blast display protocol or the PCoIP display protocol when using 3D applications in a remote desktop, mouse performance improves when you enable the relative mouse feature.
