With Horizon Client 3.2 and later, you can use native operating system gestures from your touch-based mobile device when you are connected to a Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012 remote desktop or a remote application hosted on Windows Server 2012. For example, you can touch, hold, and release an item on a Windows 8 desktop to display the item's context menu.

When touch redirection is enabled, you can use only native operating system touch gestures. Horizon Client local gestures, such as double-click and pinch, no longer work. You must drag the Unity Touch tab button to display the Unity Touch sidebar.

Touch redirection is enabled by default when you connect to a Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012 remote desktop or remote application hosted on Windows Server 2012.

To disable touch redirection from a remote desktop, use the Horizon Client Tools to display the Options dialog box and toggle the Windows 8 native gestures setting to off. In Horizon Client 4.0 and later, you can also disable touch redirection from the Horizon Client Settings screen. Tap Settings at the bottom of the Horizon Client screen and tap Touch to display the Windows 8 native gestures setting.
