You can change the display mode, such as from All Monitors mode to Fullscreen mode, before or after you connect to a remote desktop. This feature is not supported for published applications.

Procedure

  1. Start Horizon Client and log in to a server.
  2. Connect to the remote desktop, or right-click the remote desktop in the desktop and application selector window and select Settings.
  3. From the Display drop-down menu, select the display mode.

    Option

    Description

    All Monitors

    Displays the remote desktop window on multiple monitors. The remote desktop window appears on all monitors by default.

    Fullscreen

    Makes the remote desktop window fill the screen.

    Window - Large

    Sets the remote desktop window size to 1904 x 978 pixels.

    Window - Small

    Sets the remote desktop window size to 640 x 480 pixels.

    Custom

    Displays a slider that you can use to configure a custom remote desktop window size.

  4. To save your changes, click Apply.
  5. To close the dialog box, click OK.

    If you are connected to the remote desktop, your changes are applied immediately. If you are not connected to the remote desktop, your changes are applied when you connect to it. Horizon Client saves display settings in a preferences file for the remote desktop after you exit from Horizon Client.

Results

If you use All Monitors mode and you click the Minimize button, if you then maximize the window, the window goes back to All Monitors mode. Similarly, if you use Fullscreen mode and minimize the window, if you then maximize the window, the window goes back to Fullscreen mode on one monitor.

Note:

If Horizon Client uses all monitors, and you maximize a published application window, the window expands to the full screen of only the monitor that contains it.
