With the touch redirection feature, you can use native operating system gestures from a touch-based mobile device in a remote desktop or published application. For example, you can touch, hold, and release an item on a Windows 8 remote desktop to display the item's context menu.

When touch redirection is enabled, 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, Windows 10, or Windows Server 2012 remote desktop, or to a published application that is hosted on a Windows Server 2012 server.

To disable touch redirection, tap Settings at the bottom of the Horizon Client window, tap Touch, and toggle the Windows Native Touch Gestures setting to off. If you are connected to a remote desktop or published application, tap the Settings (gear) icon in the Horizon Client Tools radial menu.
