Steps we need to follow to configure Receiver/Workspace app from GPO.


Step 1: Importing Receiver/Workspace app's admx and adml template to Policy Definitions on Domain Controller
Copy Receiver.admx and Receiver.adml from C:Program Files (x86)CitrixICA ClientConfiguration and C:Program Files (x86)CitrixICA ClientConfigurationes-ES respectively
Note: Receiver.adml can be in a different directory for different language e.g. C:Program Files (x86)CitrixICA ClientConfigurationja-JP (for Japanese)
Paste Receiver.admx in %systemroot%policyDefinitions and Receiver.adml in %systemroot%policyDefinitionsen-us(for English) on Domain Controller
Open gpedit.msc or group policy management console on DC
Go to Computer Configuration>Administrative Templates>Citrix Component>Citrix Receiver>StoreFront
Enable 'NetScaler Gateway URL/StoreFront Accounts List' setting
Configuring for StoreFront URL:
Format to configure: Store Name;Store URL;Store enable state;Store Description

make sure to check 'Enable pass-though authentication' and 'Allow pass-through authentication for all ICA connection' in options for the policy
Save the settings and you will be able to see that all the devices getting the policy are configured with the Store in the policy and domain pass-through will work

Additional Resources

With Windows 10 Fall Creator Update, many users are not facing issues related to mouse cursor on their Citrix Desktop Sessions. Scaling in Citrix desktop and the applications were not even fitting on the screen with the default 150% scale. This unfortunately has the side effect of drastically shrinking the mouse cursor to almost disappear. The cursor also blinks on and off at random intervals as if it was getting lost within the frame buffers. If you try to make changes and set the scaling back to the default 150% then the receiver resolution is unusable as applications on the screen are “zoomed in too close” and cut off as stated above but the mouse cursor goes back to a normal size. Good News is that with the latest version of Citrix Receiver for Windows 4.10 and higher are now “DPI scaling aware”, and provide improved support for handling higher DPI resolution in a session.

Here are few Use Case Scenarios

Citrix Receiver App For Windows 10

  • You can now use multiple monitors with different DPI settings. Using this feature, you can scale the sessions to the monitor DPI settings or use the native session’s resolution.
  • High DPI support is available in both application and desktop session.
  • This feature also supports multi-monitor sessions. You can scale the display to the required resolution based on the monitor DPI settings.
  • Seamless applications are scaled as per the monitor DPI settings.
  • In case of multiple monitors with different DPIs, the session snaps to the most appropriate monitor when moved. This is to avoid graphical conflicts that might occur when applications are between differently scaled monitors.
