Citrix Files for Windows

About

Citrix Files for Windows allows you to access your files directly through a mapped drive, providing a native Windows Explorer experience. Files are downloaded only when accessed, and temporarily stored on your computer. Changes made to the files are automatically saved back to the cloud. You can access more functionality through the Windows right-click context menu and perform operations such as sharing or requesting of files.

What’s new

What’s new in 4.3

Offline access (preview)

Offline access allows you to access folders and files you designate as Offline when you are not connected to the internet. You can make changes locally and when you reconnect to the internet, the changes are reflected in your Citrix Content Collaboration account. If a different user uploads new content to a folder that you have designated for Offline on your device, the content is automatically marked as Offline on your device.

Offline access is configured at the file or folder level and for each device. If you configure a file or folder as offline on one device, the same file or folder is not offline on another device.

For more information on offline access, see Knowledge Center article CTX237762.

Workspace single sign-on to network shares and SharePoint connectors

You can use your Citrix Workspace account to use single sign-on to log on to network shares and SharePoint connectors. For more info, see Authentication to network share and SharePoint connectors.
