You want to switch from the VMware Horizon session to the IGEL desktop with the key combination [Ctrl] + [Windows] + [D]. But, by default, hotkeys have no effect in VMware Horizon sessions.


Create a custom command that adds the hotkey the system. It is recommended to use a profile:

  1. Create a new profile. For more information about profiles, see Profiles.
  2. Go to System > Firmware Customization > Custom Commands > Base.
  3. Under Initialization enter this command: echo '<ctrl><super>0x020' >> /etc/vmware/view-keycombos-config 

    For more information about hotkeys, see VMware Docs.

  4. Assign the profile to your device and reboot.
