You can log off from a remote desktop, even if the remote desktop is not open in Horizon Client. If the remote desktop is open in Horizon Client, you can use the Windows Start menu to log off.


Obtain credentials for logging in, such as an Active Directory user name and password, RSA SecurID user name and passcode, or RADIUS authentication user name and passcode.


  1. Tap Servers (cloud icon) at the bottom of the Horizon Client window and tap the server shortcut.
  2. If prompted, supply an RSA user name and passcode, an Active Directory user name and password, or both.
  3. Touch and hold the remote desktop shortcut until the context menu appears.
  4. Tap Log Off in the context menu.


The remote desktop is disconnected after you are logged off. Any unsaved files that are open on the remote desktop are closed during the log out operation.
