When you disconnect from a server, running applications might remain open. You can configure how running applications behave when you reconnect to the server.

A View administrator can disable the application reconnection behavior settings in Horizon Client from the command line or by setting a group policy setting. The group policy setting takes precedence over the command-line setting. For more information, see the -appSessionReconnectionBehavior option in Horizon Client Command Usage, or the Disconnected application session resumption behavior group policy setting in Scripting Definition Settings for Client GPOs.


  1. In the desktop and application selector window of Horizon Client, right-click a remote application and select Settings.
  2. In the Remote Applications pane that appears, select an application reconnection behavior setting.
    Option Description
    Ask to reconnect to open applications Horizon Client notifies you that you have one or more remote applications running when you reconnect to the server. You can click Reconnect to applications to reopen the application windows, or Not Now to not reopen the application windows.
    Reconnect automatically to open applications Application windows for running applications automatically reopen when you reconnect to the server.
    Do not ask to reconnect and do not automatically reconnect Horizon Client does not prompt you to reopen running applications and running application windows do not reopen when you reconnect to the server.
  3. Click OK to save your changes.


The setting takes effect the next time you connect to the server.
