Select Specific Monitors for Horizon Client to Use

Issue Description

The default monitors chosen by Horizon Client are not optimal for your workstation configuration.

Resolution

There is a setting in Horizon Client that can change which monitors are used for display. Start Horizon Client and log in to a server.

  1. In the desktop and application selection window, right-click the remote desktop and select Settings.
  2. Select PCoIP or VMware Blast from the Connect Via drop-down menu.
  3. Select All Monitors from the Display drop-down menu.

    Thumbnails of the monitors that are currently connected to the client system appear under Display settings. The display topology matches the display settings on the client system.

  4. Click a thumbnail to select or deselect a monitor on which to display the remote desktop window.

    When you select a monitor, its thumbnail changes color. A warning message appears if you violate a display selection rule.

  5. Click Apply to save your changes.
  6. Click OK to close the dialog box.
  7. Connect to the remote desktop.

Your changes are applied immediately when you connect to the remote desktop. Your changes are saved in the Horizon Client preferences file for the remote desktop after you exit from Horizon Client.
