You can use the Horizon Console user-interface features to navigate Horizon Pages and to find, filter, and sort Horizon objects.

Horizon Console includes many common user interface features. For example, the navigation pane on the left side of each page directs you to other Horizon Console pages. The search filters let you select filtering criteria that are related to the objects you are searching for.

The following table describes a few additional features that can help you to use Horizon Console.

Table 1. Horizon Console Navigation and Display Features

You can continue to Ctrl+click to sort all the columns in a table in descending order of importance.

Press Ctrl+Shift and click to deselect a sort item.

Customizing table columns You can customize the display of Horizon Console table columns by hiding selected columns and locking the first column. This feature lets you control the display of large tables that contain many columns.

Right-click any column header to display a context menu that lets you take the following actions:

  • Hide the selected column.
  • Customize columns. A dialog displays all columns in the table. You can select the columns to display or hide.
  • Lock the first column. This option forces the left-hand column to remain displayed as you scroll horizontally across a table with many columns.
Customizing table pagination For pages with tables of data, you can select to display 20, 50, or 100 rows per page.
Selecting all rows in a multi-page table You can select all rows of data in a multi-page table by switching on the Select All Pages toggle at the bottom of the screen.
Selecting Horizon objects and displaying Horizon object details In Horizon Console tables that list Horizon objects, you can select an object or display object details.

  • To display object details, double-click the left cell in the object's row. A new page displays the object's details.

For example, on the Inventory > Desktops page, click anywhere in an individual pool's row to activate commands that affect the pool.

Double-click the ID cell in the left column to display a new page that contains details about the pool.

Expanding dialog boxes to view details You can expand Horizon Console dialog boxes to view details such as desktop names and user names in table columns.
