Users can drag and drop data between client systems and remote desktops and published applications.
Client Requirements for Drag and Drop
- Only Windows client and Mac client systems are supported. Other types of client systems are not supported.
- To drag and drop files and folders, the client drive redirection feature must be enabled in Horizon Client for Windows.
For information about using the drag and drop feature on a Windows client, see the VMware Horizon Client for Windows Installation and Setup Guide document. For information about using the drag and drop feature on a Mac client, see the VMware Horizon Client for Mac Installation and Setup Guide document.
Agent Requirements for Drag and Drop
To use the drag and drop feature with files, folders, and file content, you must enable the Client Drive Redirection option when you install Horizon Agent.
Using Group Policy Settings to Configure Drag and Drop
You can configure the drag and drop direction, the allowed drag and drop formats, and the drag and drop size limit by editing group policy settings in the ADMX template file vdm_agent_dnd.admx. The Drag and Drop settings are in the folder in the Group Policy Management Editor. See VMware View Agent Configuration ADMX Template Settings.
Using Dynamic Environment Manager to Configure Drag and Drop
With Dynamic Environment Manager 9.8 or later, you can use Smart Policies to configure drag and drop behavior, including disabling the entire drag and drop feature. See Horizon Smart Policy Settings.
