In that case, the functionality of SolisWorkspace is limited. Restart your browser. If the problem persists, reinstall Citrix Workspace App (Citrix Receiver).


    Antivirus scanners may cause technical issues. When you experience a problem, you might try to do the following:
    – Add Citrix as an exception to your virus scanner
    – Uninstall all existing virus scanners, and (re)install a good antivirus application
    – Add Citrix manually as an extension within Google Chrome
