Citrix Receiver apps open in the background - fixed


Citrix Receiver 4.x is installed on 64-bit Windows 8.x. Whenever an application is launched from Receiver by clicking on it, it opens in the background (behind the Receiver window). This may cause users to think that nothing is happening and prompt them to click the icon again.


The following registry keys need to be applied to the client-side computer, But first, log out of Receiver, close and exit the application by right-clicking on the icon in the system tray / notification area and selecting Exit.

This can also be accomplished by copying the below text, pasting into notepad and saving as a REG file (e.g. "CitrixReceiverRegFix.reg") or by applying through Group Policy.

Note that the below keys are for 64-bit Windows clients. For 32-bit Windows clients, simply remove the "Wow6432Node" key from the entries below:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Citrix\ICA Client\Engine\Configuration\Advanced\Modules\WFClient]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]

[HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop]
