Want specific folders on your client device to appear in your citrix published desktop/app session?

So often been asked this one on my travels, rather than providing the whole endpoint’s C: drive users'(via client drive mapping policy) have often expressed a desire to just show my documents or better still specific folders even within that.

How to setup:

  1. On the citrix server:
    1. Go into registry and create a key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Citrix\Client Folder Redirection.
    2. Create a REG_DWORD value.
      • Name: CFROnlyModeAvailable
      • Type: REG_DWORD
      • Data: Set to 1
  2. On the endpoint device:
    1. Ensure a reasonable new version of citrix receiver is running.
    2. From the Receiver installation directory, start CtxCFRUI.exe.
    3. Select the Custom radio button and add, edit, or remove folders.
    4. Disconnect and reconnect your sessions for the setting to take effect
