Configure Citrix Receiver for HTML5 use of browser tabs

Nov 28, 2017

By default, Citrix Receiver for HTML5 starts desktops and applications in a new browser tab. However, when users start resources from shortcuts using Citrix Receiver for HTML5, the desktop or application replaces the Citrix Receiver for Website in the existing browser tab rather than appearing in a new tab. 

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. On the Windows Start screen or Apps screen, locate and click the Citrix StoreFront tile.
  2. In the left pane, select Stores and in the Action pane, select Manage Receiver for Web Sites, and click Configure.
  3. Select Deploy Citrix Receiver.
  4. Select Always use HTML 5 Receiver from the Deployment options drop-down menu and depending on the tab in which you want to start applications, select or deselect Launch applications in the same tab as Receiver for Web.
