You can log off from a remote desktop operating system, even if you do not have a desktop open in Horizon Client.

If you are currently connected to and logged in to a remote desktop, you can use the Windows Start menu to log off. After Windows logs you off, the desktop is disconnected.

Note: Any unsaved files that are open on the remote desktop are closed during the logoff operation.


  • Obtain the credentials that you need to log in, such as Active Directory user name and password, RSA SecurID user name and passcode, or RADIUS authentication user name and passcode.
  • If you have not logged in at least once, become familiar with the procedure Connect to a Remote Desktop or Application.


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

What to do next

Tap the Logout button in the upper-left corner of the screen to disconnect from the server.
