VMware Horizon portfolio provides the familiar, personalized desktop environment that end users expect. For example, on some client systems, end users can access USB and other devices connected to their local computer, send documents to any printer that their local computer can detect, authenticate with smart cards, and use multiple display monitors.

VMware Horizon portfolio includes many features that you might want to make available to your end users. Before you decide which features to use, you must understand the limitations and restrictions of each feature.
Note: The user experience features listed in this section are available for Horizon 8 and the configuration steps are written specifically for Horizon 8.
