Depending on how a Horizon administrator has configured the drag and drop feature, you might be able to drag text, images, and other data formats between the client system and an open application in a remote desktop or a published application. For example, you might be able to drag text from a browser on the client system and drop it into the WordPad application in a remote desktop.

The following data formats are supported.

  • HTML Format
  • Rich Text Format (RTF)
  • CF_DIB
  • FileGroupDescriptorW
  • FileGroupDescriptor
  • FileContents

By default, you can drag up to 1 MB of data, and you can drag only from the client system to a remote desktop or published application. A Horizon administrator can configure the maximum data size and drag and drop direction.
