An administrator can configure URL links that you click inside a remote desktop or application to open in the default browser on your client system. A link might be to a Web page, a phone number, an email address, or other type of link. This feature is called URL Content Redirection.

An administrator can also configure URL links that you click inside a browser or application on your client system to open in a remote desktop or application. In this scenario, if Horizon Client is not already open, it starts and prompts you to log in.

An administrator might set up the URL Content Redirection feature for security purposes. For example, if you are inside your company network and click a link that points to a URL that is outside the network, the link might be more safely opened in a remote application. An administrator can configure which application opens the link.

Each company configures its own URL redirection policies. If you have questions about how the URL Content Redirection feature behaves at your company, contact a system administrator.
