We have to automate applications inside citrix desktop. In order to launch the citrix desktop, we hit a URL in browser which leads us to Citrix login page where we enter the credentials and it brings us the screen to click and launch the citrix desktop.
In the browser page there is Settings option where we can select the window size. By default ‘Seamless’ is selected.
Seamless Mode: In this seamless mode, the citrix desktop opens in a restore mode where you can click maximize button and maximize the window. Once maximized, we can see the citrix desktop window title bar, the task bar of the citrix window sticks on top of the parent desktop taskbar.
Fullscreen mode: If we change the Window size to ‘Fullscreen’ in the Settings page and then launch the Citrix desktop, it covers the entire monitor screen. There is no citrix window title bar and no parent desktop task bar. Here we can’t access the UiPath Studio (in the parent desktop) as the citrix window covers the entire screen. We have to do Shift+F2 to access the parent screen.
My question is which mode is recommended - Seamless mode or Fullscreen mode for citrix automation? Full screen mode gives me larger view of the window compared to Seamless maximized mode but I can’t directly access my UiPath studio.
