Citrix Mice & Touchpads Driver Download For Windows 10

Posted : admin On 1/10/2022

To overcome end-user challenges of operating Windows applications on the iPad and other tablets, Citrix has released the Citrix Plus X1 Mouse. However, adopting this hardware add-on means employees must carry around yet another device, which ironically causes them to be less mobile.

With release of Citrix Receiver for Windows 4.10.0, where users will not be able to use their mouse to click and select on certain context menu items or select items in a combo box.

  1. I am using Citrix Receiver from my Windows 10 PC to access certain applications, one being Acrobat Standard. I also have access to another app in Citrix, which has the same problem. The issue is that the mouse is offset by about 20x20 pixels.
  2. From version 10.06.100 or 11.02.100 on, the SpaceMouse does not interfere anymore with the local mouse pointer because of a registry key which is enabled by default. This registry parameter ignores the SpaceMouse for the IGEL graphical user interface.

Parallels® Remote Application Server (RAS), on the other hand, offers a more streamlined mobile experience without the need for complicated add-ons. With Parallels RAS, users enjoy the benefits of Application technology, so they can rely on the native touch gestures they’re already familiar with —tap, drag, swipe— to manage Windows applications on iPad and Android tablets.

Citrix Plus X1 Mouse – One more device, one more cost

The Citrix X1 Mouse is a wireless mobile device that works over Bluetooth. It allows users to navigate virtual Windows desktops by delivering apps on iOS devices. It also supports Android devices. For the first time, there is a mouse that works with iOS devices and does
not require users to root their devices.

The Citrix Plus X1 mouse delivers a high-definition virtual Windowsdesktops to mobile devices through the HDX technology. This allows users to seamlessly interact with both Android and iOS devices via regular activities such as clicking, hovering, dragging, and scrolling with enhanced precision than when using fingers.

If you have used the Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops on a tablet before, you’ll appreciate the X1’s powerful navigational features that you can’t get with native mobile devices. However, as incredibly powerful as the XI mouse is, it has some limitations, including:

  1. It supports limited apps. You can only use Citrix Plus X1 mouse with limited Citrix apps, including:
  • Citrix Receiver (version 5.9.5 or higher)
  • Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops (all versions)
  • Citrix Enterprise Mobile Apps (such as GoToMyPC, ShareConnect, and WorxDesktop)

  1. It doesn’t provide the same response time as a traditional desktop mouse
  2. You have to pay an expensive premium because of the add-ons and complicated licensing models.
  3. It hinders mobility. Mobile warriors, who value simplicity, must carry the device with their personal belongings.
  4. It has a short warranty period. Citrix allows a 90-day period, which is too short upon which you can lodge complaints if the device malfunctions. Again, you can only lodge complaints if you purchased from an authorized distributor or Citrix Store.
  5. You need iOS 13 to use the mouse with other native apps. However, when used on non-non-Citrix apps on iOS devices, the Citrix Plus X1 mouse can only manage simple clicks and drags. And when it comes to non-iOS devices, it operates like a standard Bluetooth device with limited native mouse support.

Mobile warriors embrace the Parallels RAS mobile experience

When employees are on the road, they’re generally juggling quite a few balls at once, so every ball they can leave on the ground helps.

Parallels RAS will make your employees more efficient on the road by cutting out unnecessary equipment. With Parallels RAS, managing Excel spreadsheets and other Windows applications from tablet devices become exponentially less complicated because employees can use the same mobile gestures they’re most familiar with—for example, tap and zoom on the iPad Pro.

Parallels RAS makes the migration process easier with a free migration tool that automates most of Citrix Virtual Apps (formerly Citrix XenApp) use case scenarios. The migration tool extracts settings from Citrix XenApp 6.x into a file that can be imported from Parallels RAS Console.

With Windows 10 Fall Creator Update, many users are not facing issues related to mouse cursor on their Citrix Desktop Sessions. Scaling in Citrix desktop and the applications were not even fitting on the screen with the default 150% scale. This unfortunately has the side effect of drastically shrinking the mouse cursor to almost disappear. The cursor also blinks on and off at random intervals as if it was getting lost within the frame buffers. If you try to make changes and set the scaling back to the default 150% then the receiver resolution is unusable as applications on the screen are “zoomed in too close” and cut off as stated above but the mouse cursor goes back to a normal size. Good News is that with the latest version of Citrix Receiver for Windows 4.10 and higher are now “DPI scaling aware”, and provide improved support for handling higher DPI resolution in a session.

Here are few Use Case Scenarios

  • You can now use multiple monitors with different DPI settings. Using this feature, you can scale the sessions to the monitor DPI settings or use the native session’s resolution.
  • High DPI support is available in both application and desktop session.
  • This feature also supports multi-monitor sessions. You can scale the display to the required resolution based on the monitor DPI settings.
  • Seamless applications are scaled as per the monitor DPI settings.
  • In case of multiple monitors with different DPIs, the session snaps to the most appropriate monitor when moved. This is to avoid graphical conflicts that might occur when applications are between differently scaled monitors.

Steps to follow

I have tested with Citrix Receiver and you can try following steps to make it work.

  1. Right click on Citrix Receiver notification icon and select Advanced Preferences.

  1. From the Advanced Preferences select DPI Settings
