Citrix Receiver - Desktop Display Size and Position

Wednesday, May 02, 2018

I wanted to understand how Citrix  Reciever stored the size and window positions of resources that i connect to. 
I have a number of end-points that i connect from and it seemed to do a good job of remembering how i like my setup on each device. 

Eg. split across 2 monitors on my main desktop, and as a window on my laptop. 

The screen settings are stored back on the end-point in the following REG KEY

HKCU\Software\Citrix\Xendesktop\DesktopViewer\xxxx     (where xxxx is the resource name)

The resource name seems to be the display appended with a unique code. Im not able to work out how the unique code is generated but its pretty easy to identify which session you are after just from the name.
