Remote applications look and feel like applications that are installed on your client PC or laptop.

  • You can minimize and maximize a remote application through the application. When a remote application is minimized, it appears in the taskbar of your client system. You can also minimize and maximize the remote application by clicking its icon in the taskbar.
  • You can quit a remote application through the application or by right-clicking its icon in the taskbar.
  • You can press Alt+Tab to switch between open remote applications.
  • If a remote application creates a Windows System Tray item, that item also appears in the system tray on your Windows client computer. By default, the system tray icons only appear to show notifications, but you can customize this behavior just as you do with natively installed applications.
    Note: If you open the Control Panel to customize the notification area icons, the names of the icons for remote applications are listed as VMware Horizon Client - application name.
