Published applications look and feel like applications that are installed on the local client system.

When using published applications, follow these tips.

  • You can minimize and maximize a published application through the published application. When a published application is minimized, it appears in the taskbar of the client system. You can also minimize and maximize the published application by clicking its icon in the taskbar.

  • You can quit a published application through the published application or by right-clicking its icon in the taskbar.

  • You can press Alt+Tab to switch between open published applications.

  • If a published application creates a Windows System Tray item, that item also appears in the system tray on the client system. By default, the system tray icons appear only to show notifications. You can customize this behavior in the same way that you customize natively installed applications.

    Note:

    If you open the Control Panel to customize the notification area icons, the names of the icons for published applications are listed as VMware Horizon Client - application name.
