Please end my WFH hell - Alt Tab inside Citrix

  Suz39 20:36 17 Mar 2020


So like the rest of the UK I had to start WFH with no notice today. Using the Citrix Receiver to log in to my work computer. What’s really annoying and slowing me down is not being able to use alt + tab to move between apps on the end computer (my work computer). Instead it tabs between Citrix as one whole app and then anything I’ve got open in windows on my own laptop. V annoying.

So I googled and found threads that tell you how to fix it on reg edit.. however.. I can’t follow the instructions because my menus run out.

So.. HKEYLOCALMACHINE \SOFTWARE\Citrix\ICAClient\Engine\Lockdown Profiles\All Regions\Lockdown\Virtual Channels\Keyboard\

Mine runs out here


There’s no engine option. Not sure how to add a picture but can try if needed.

Can anyone help?

Thank you!!
