Hi there everyone,

I have a quick question about Citrix.  Whenever I launch a program from the web interface, the program will launch fine and then once it is open, I can't get to the program menu bar because it is underneath the mac menu bar.  Is there a way to customize it so that all programs start another, i don't know.. 20px down?

I've ever never had that issue with Citrix before, but I'm not on 10.5 yet. One of the things you might want to look at is the native resolution for your virtual environment. One of the things I've noticed when running citrix on  say, a MacBook, is that the native environment is configured to run on at least a 15 inch screen. This can be toggled or changed on an individual account basis for the citrix environment.

Great! But where do I go to change the screen size?

Are you the citrix admin for your group? If not, depending on the permissions, you can alter the resolution from the standard display settings inside you're 'virtual' PC inside Citrix. (You would right click anywhere on the desktop and select Properties). Otherwise, you can have your citrix admin alter your default resolution settings. With the first option, you may have to re-do this with every start of your citrix instance if your citrix server doesn't save settings.

You can also change your native Mac resolution to say 1024 x 768 (which will probably stretch things a little) if all else fails, and then just put it back to your default once done inside Citrix.

Yes, I am the Citrix Admin.  Is there a way to do it as the citrix admin?

You could go into the connection properties for the ICA configuration and change the resolution/colour depth there.
You can also try going into the Citrix Manager on the server, right click the top setting that says "citrix xp" and select properties.
