You can use the Left Handed Mode option if the primary and secondary mouse buttons are switched in your remote desktop.

About this task

If you set the mouse properties inside your remote desktop so that the primary mouse button is the one on the right side, as many left-handed people do, you must turn on the Left Handed Mode option in Horizon Client. If you do not turn on this option when mouse buttons are reversed, a single tap acts as a click of the secondary mouse button. For example, a single tap might display a context menu rather than selecting something or inserting a cursor.

Procedure

  • If you are already connected to the remote desktop, perform these steps.
    1. Tap to expand the Horizon Client Tools radial menu icon and tap the Settings icon to display the Options dialog box.
    2. Tap Left Handed Mode to toggle the option to on.
    3. Tap outside the Options dialog box to close it.
  • (Horizon Client 4.0 and later) If you are not connected to the remote desktop, perform these steps.
    1. Tap Settings at the bottom of the Horizon Client screen.
    2. Tap Touch on the Settings screen.
    3. Tap Left Handed Mode to toggle the option to on.

Results

A single tap now acts as a click with the primary mouse button.
