ICA client keyboard shortcuts

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/09/07

Too bad the Citrix Receiver remaps the keyboard shortcuts in a way that keyboards without a numeric keypad is a pain.

First of all, it was a bit tough to find the shortcuts, and I have not found a way to modify them.

Here is what I did find:

Windows keyboard shortcuts

RDS/CTX Shortcut Keys list | virtuEs.IT.

  • SHIFT+F1: Displays the Windows Task List.
  • SHIFT+F2: Displays or Hides the Windows Title Bar for the Citrix Receiver Client window.
  • SHIFT+F3: Disconnects the ICA session and exits the Citrix Receiver.
  • CTRL+F1: Opens the Windows Security dialog box (similar to CTRL+ALT+DEL).
  • CTRL+F2: Displays the remote computer’s Start Menu (similar to CTRL+ESC).
  • CTRL+F3: Displays the Windows Task Manager (similar to CTRL+SHIFT+ESC).
  • ALT+F2: Cycles through running programs in the Citrix session (similar to ALT+ESC).
  • ALT+PLUS: Switches between programs from left to right (similar to ALT+TAB).
  • ALT+MINUS: Switches between programs from right to left (similar to ALT+SHIFT+TAB).

I could not disable these keys as mentioned in How to Enable or Disable Hotkeys within an ICA File (including Template.ica file) or To change the hotkey sequence from the default – Citrix eDocs.

I don’t prefer to change HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE modifications like mentioned in CTX118974 – Readme for Citrix online app plug-in 11.1.1 for Windows – Citrix Knowledge Center.

Mac OS X keyboard shortcuts

osx – What are the OS X equivalents for Windows shortcuts in Citrix Receiver? – Super User: Just use the Windows equivalents, but combine it with the Fn key when that doesn’t work:

Try Ctrl+Option+Delete or Ctrl+Option+Fn+Delete.
