Configure Receiver for HTML5 use of browser tabs

Sep 12, 2014

By default, Receiver for HTML5 starts desktops and applications in a new browser tab. However, when users start resources from shortcuts using Receiver for HTML5, the desktop or application replaces the Receiver for Web site in the existing browser tab rather than appearing in a new tab. To configure Receiver for HTML5 so that resources are always started in the same tab as the Receiver for Web site, you edit the site configuration file.

Important: In multiple server deployments, use only one server at a time to make changes to the configuration of the server group. Ensure that the Citrix StoreFront management console is not running on any of the other servers in the deployment. Once complete, propagate your configuration changes to the server group so that the other servers in the deployment are updated.
  1. Use a text editor to open the web.config file for the Receiver for Web site, which is typically located in the C:\inetpub\wwwroot\Citrix\storenameWeb\ directory, where storename is the name specified for the store when it was created.
  2. Locate the following element in the file.
    <html5 ... singleTabLaunch="false" />
  3. Change the value of the singleTabLaunch attribute to true to start desktops and applications with Receiver for HTML5 in the same browser tab as the Receiver for Web site instead of opening a new tab.
