Publish Windows Explorer in Cirtix

Is there a way to publish Windows Explorer in Citrix? Any way to make it read-only, so users cannot change contents?  Or at minimum, maybe to make it where they just can’t download data.
Please advice

Yes, you can publish windows explorer. You can simply use this as the command :
c:\Windows\pubexplorer.exe /e,/root,  "\\share or a folder"
And make sure that you give the Users Readonly NTFS permissions on that folder.

You can publish Windows Explorer from C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe, where C:\ is your system drive.   You would then use GPO's to restrict what users can do.    I attached a pdf report of a gpo I setup for guest users that access our systems this way, through Citrix.

If you want to prevent them from downloading data, be sure to disable drive redirection, and clipboard redirection.  If you want to be *really* sure, be sure you disable USB redirection also.

Very easy ~ Just simply locate the explorer.exe and then deny write right on the drive.

if you want then default explore c:\ then type in published application "C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe c:\"

So I got everything created in a GPO called UserAccess.  I couldn't find one registry key: Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\RemovableStorageDevices\Deny_All  1
Do we need to create this one manually?
