You can create a shortcut for a remote desktop or application. The shortcut appears on your client desktop, just like shortcuts for locally installed applications. You can also create a Start menu item that appears in the Programs list.


  1. Start Horizon Client and log in to the server.
  2. In the desktop and application selection window, right-click an application or desktop and select Create Shortcut or Add to Start Menu from the context menu that appears.


Depending on the command you selected, a shortcut item is created on your client desktop or in the Start menu of your client system.

What to do next

You can rename, delete, or perform any action on this shortcut that you can perform on shortcuts for locally installed applications. When you use the shortcut, if you are not already logged in to the server, you are prompted to log in before the remote desktop or application window opens.
