Feature Support Matrix When you access a remote desktop or application from the browser-based HTML Access client, some features are not available.

Connect to a Remote Desktop or Application Use your Active Directory credentials to connect to the remote desktops and applications that you are authorized to use.
Connect to a Server in Workspace ONE Mode Beginning with Horizon 7 version 7.2, a Horizon administrator can enable the Workspace ONE mode on a Connection Server instance.
Use Unauthenticated Access to Connect to Published Applications A Horizon administrator can use the Unauthenticated Access feature to create Unauthenticated Access users and entitle those users to published applications on a Connection Server instance. Unauthenticated Access users can log in to the server anonymously to connect to their published applications.
Shortcut Key Combinations Some key combinations cannot be sent to a remote desktop or published application, regardless of the language that you use.
International Keyboards When using non-English keyboards and locales, you must use certain settings in your client system, browser, and remote desktop. Some languages require you to use an IME (input method editor) on the remote desktop.
Screen Resolution If the Horizon Administrator configures a remote desktop with the correct amount of video RAM, the Web client can resize a remote desktop to match the size of the browser window. The default configuration is 36MB of video RAM, which is comfortably more than minimum requirement of 16MB if you are not using 3D applications.
Allowing H.264 Decoding When you use a Chrome browser, you can allow H.264 decoding in the client for remote desktop and published application sessions.
Setting the Time Zone The time zone that a remote desktop or published application uses is set to the time zone in your local system automatically.
Using the Sidebar After you connect to a remote desktop or published application, you can use the sidebar to start other remote desktops and published applications, switch between running remote desktops and published applications, and perform other actions.
Use Multiple Monitors By using a Chrome browser (version 55 or later), you can use multiple monitors in HTML Access Web client to display a remote desktop window.
Using DPI Synchronization The DPI Synchronization feature ensures that the DPI setting in a remote desktop or published application matches the client system's DPI setting. When you start a new remote session, Horizon Agent sets the DPI value in the remote session to match the DPI value of the client system.
Sound You can play sound in remote desktops and published applications, but some limitations apply.
Copying and Pasting Text You can copy text to and from remote desktops and published applications. A Horizon administrator can configure this feature so that copy and paste operations are allowed only from the client system to a remote desktop or published application, or only from a remote desktop or published application to the client system, or both, or neither.
Transferring Files Between the Client and a Remote Desktop With the file transfer feature, you can transfer (upload and download) files between the client and a remote desktop. File transfer to or from published applications is not supported.
Using the Real-Time Audio-Video Feature for Webcams and Microphones With the Real-Time Audio-Video feature, you can use the client machine's webcam or microphone in a remote desktop or published application. Real-Time Audio-Video is compatible with standard conferencing applications and browser-based video applications, and it supports standard webcams, audio USB devices, and analog audio input.
Using the Session Collaboration Feature You can use the Session Collaboration feature to invite other users to join an existing remote desktop session.
Log Off or Disconnect If you disconnect from a remote desktop without logging off, applications in the remote desktop might remain open. You can also disconnect from a server and leave published applications running.
Reset a Remote Desktop or Published Applications You might need to reset a remote desktop if the desktop operating system stops responding and restarting the remote desktop does not solve the problem. Resetting published applications quits all open applications.
Restart a Remote Desktop If the remote desktop operating system stops responding, you might need to restart a remote desktop. Restarting a remote desktop is similar to using the Windows operating system restart command. The remote desktop operating system usually prompts you to save any unsaved data before it restarts.
