Show/Hide Citrix Toolbar – Xendesktop

There are cases where you won’t get citrix toolbar when connecting to the VD’s. I beleive it’s hidden by default from WI5.2. Below are the config to show/hide it,


  • Edit “default.ica” file in “\inetpub\wwwroot\siteXX\conf” directory.
  • Under [Application] section, add ConnectionBar=0

WebInterface(WI)5.2 & above:

  • Edit “webinterface.conf” file in “\inetpub\wwwroot\siteXX\conf” directory.
  • Parameter is “ShowDesktopViewer=on|off”

These settings should be defined every site.

Hope this helps!
