  • Configuring Unity TouchWith Unity Touch, tablet and smart phone users can easily browse, search, and open Windowsapplications and files, choose favorite applications and files, and switch between running applications, allwithout using the Start menu or Taskbar. You can configure a default list of favorite applications thatappear in the Unity Touch sidebar.

    You can disable or enable the Unity Touch feature after Horizon Agent is installed by configuring theEnable Unity Touch group policy setting in the Horizon Agent Configuration ADMX template file(vdm_agent.admx).

    The VMware Horizon Client documents for iOS, Android, and Chrome OS devices provide moreinformation about the end user features provided by Unity Touch.

    System Requirements for Unity TouchHorizon Client software and the mobile devices on which you install Horizon Client must meet certainversion requirements to support Unity Touch.

    Horizon 7 desktop To support Unity Touch, the following software must be installed in thevirtual machine that the end user will access:

    n You install the Unity Touch feature by installing View Agent 6.0 or later.See "Install View Agent on a Virtual Machine" in the Setting Up VirtualDesktops in Horizon 7 document.

    n Operating systems: Windows 7 (32-bit or 64-bit), Windows 8 (32-bit or64-bit), Windows 8.1 (32-bit or 64-bit), Windows Server 2008 R2, orWindows Server 2012 R2, Windows 10 (32-bit or 64-bit)

    Horizon Client software Unity Touch is supported on the following Horizon Client versions:

    n Horizon Client for iOS

    n Horizon Client for Android

    n Horizon Client for Chrome OS

    Configure Favorite Applications Displayed by Unity TouchWith the Unity Touch feature, tablet and smart phone users can quickly navigate to a Horizon 7 desktopapplication or file from a Unity Touch sidebar. Although end users can specify which favorite applicationsappear in the sidebar, for added convenience, administrators can configure a default list of favoriteapplications.

    If you use floating-assignment desktop pools, the favorite applications and favorite files that end usersspecify will be lost when they disconnect from a desktop unless you enable roaming user profiles inActive Directory.

    Configuring Remote Desktop Features in Horizon 7

  • The default list of favorite applications list remains in effect when an end user first connects to a desktopthat is enabled with Unity Touch. However, if the user configures his or her own favorite application list,the default list is ignored. The user's favorite application list stays in the user's roaming profile and isavailable when the user connects to different machines in a floating or dedicated pool.

    If you create a default list of favorite applications and one or more of the applications are not installed inthe Horizon 7 desktop operating system, or the paths to these applications are not found in the Startmenu, the applications do not appear in the list of favorites. You can use this behavior to set up onemaster default list of favorite applications that can be applied to multiple virtual machine images withdifferent sets of installed applications.

    For example, if Microsoft Office and Microsoft Visio are installed on one virtual machine, and WindowsPowershell and VMware vSphere Client are installed on a second virtual machine, you can create one listthat includes all four applications. Only the installed applications appear as default favorite applications oneach respective desktop.

    You can use different methods to specify a default list of favorite applications:

    n Add a value to the Windows registry on the virtual machines in the desktop pool

    n Create an administrative installation package from the Horizon Agent installer and distribute thepackage to the virtual machines

    n Run the Horizon Agent installer from the command line on the virtual machines

    Note Unity Touch assumes that shortcuts to app
