Enable Windows Hotkeys like Win+E for Windows Explorer in Citrix Session

Marc Kuhn


Hi guy's

We have a new Citrix VIrtual Apps & Desktops 7.15 LTSR CU3 environment with Windows Server 2016 VDA's. We need to be able to use the Windows Hotkeys like Win+E for the Windows Explorer in the Citrix Session. As fas as i understand, that has to be configured on the client. We tryed that reg key:


reg add "HKCU\Software\Citrix\ICA Client\Engine\Lockdown Profiles\All Regions\Lockdown\Virtual Channels\Keyboard" /v TransparentKeyPassthrough /t REG_SZ /d Remote /f


Does anyone can give me a hint, where do i need to configure that?


Many thanks for your help.


Best regards,

Hi guys

i was able to find the reason for that. We had the following config change:

- Set "Remove programs on Setting menu" in User Configuration/Policies/Administrative Templates/Start Menu and Taskbar from "Enabled" to "Not configured"


Now everything is working like expected.


Best regards,
