How does file type association work in citrix, say for example a user has a desktop PC, and the admin wants users to access apps/files via citrix not their desktop PC (no pass through authentication they have to login to the domain and then into citrix 2 logins), if a user has say a word document on a network drive that they want to use, does FTA kick in and log them into citrix, or will it just open via word on their PC? I dont really get it?

Also - I cant really see what encourages users to login via cirtix, i.e. if they have all their software and all their drives mapped on their desktop, why would the admin have them then login to citrix to do the exact same thing. Wheres the benefit or need to access citrix if all the tools are available on their desktop, i just dont get it/see the benefits?
