How to remap F3 and F4 buttons in Citrix when used on an iPad/Android Tablet

Posted on 2011-10-06

Hi All,

I have an issue where on our mobile tablet devices the F3 and F4 keys are binded to ALT TAB forward and Backwards when using a XenApp Desktop session on an iPad or Android tablet.

I have previously remapped keys which work fine on all of the Citrix Web Plugin users that access their sessions from within a Browser under Windows 7.

The changes were the following:

Would like some assistance on how to remap the F3 and F4 keys on the mobile devices as they are currently pointing to ALT TAB backwards and ALT TAB forwards in sequence and this is rather frustrating when certain applications need specifically the F3 and F4 keys.

Please let me know your thoughts/solution to this.

    That doesn't tell you how to edit the mappings, though.

    I've already done key remaps for our desktop clients but I'll try this again from your posts.


    Anyone else actually edited these keys for iPad use?
