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


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


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

What to do next

You can rename, delete, or perform any action on a 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.
