Citrix XAXD 7.15, an end-user system ICA file downloads and open with different program types, e.g., notepad or word
What changes I have to do at Citrix Server's side to open ICA with Citrix Receiver /Workspace app automatically?

I have made a file type association through GPO. I have checked in FTA under "Choose default apps by file type"  . ICA associated with " Citrix Connection manger".

I have created one test.ica file on desktop ... the symbol changed to a Citrix-icon. That means, File Type Association (FTA) is working fine.

Google Chrome is downloading the ICA file. Whereas "Internet Explorer" is not a downloading ICA file. App / VDI directly opening.

This change must be made at client-side.

Yes , a file type association has been  made through GPO. Still, all users are facing the same issue.

if you create a test.ica file at userdesktop ... the symbol changes to a citrix-icon?

Otherwise, there is a problem with the FTA.

Whereas "Internet Explorer" is not a downloading ICA file. App/VDI directly opening.

Hi,

Google Chrome: Click the drop-down list for the file in the download bar and select "Always Open Files of This Type".
