Is there a VMware Horizon client setting to set the display mode to “Full Screen – Multimonitor” in IGEL OS / UMS?


Can anyone tell me if a VMware Horizon client setting to set the display mode to “Full Screen – Multimonitor” is possible in the profiles? I don’t see this option in the UMS profile?


Hi Hans, there are additional options which can be enforced in the local Horizon client config files. However, can you be more specific about the Horizon option which you are looking for?


I know, it sounds weird but this setting is a bit hidden:

Sessions=>RDP=>RDP Global=>Window

Multi monitor Fullscreen mode

That will apply also to Vmware Blast and PCoIP even if it is in the RDP Section


That is weird indeed… could I have found that in the online Igel KB anywhere?

So, this one?


Yes!

Well, it‘s there but still a bit hidden😅


And does this apply to Citrix and any others as well?

Or do they have their own private settings on their respective Session profile options?

Ah, tested, that works!

Thanks!

Gotta love it. Apply a setting, 2 seconds later you’re testing: and it works… 🙂

Can the user overrule this setting in the horizon client side, or does this setting overrule the user?


This setting overrules the user. Anf is only meant for horizon/RDP.


Hmmm, as a user I can overrule this in my test env.

I just logged on, set it to small window and it opens in a small window…

Window size in Horizon Session setting is set to full screen

I’ll try and test this further on a clean setup.
