To access files on your local MacOS computer from inside any Citrix Virtual App/Desktop is typically enabled by default. You can skip to step 5 to see if things are working first. If your local files are still not appearing, you can follow these steps to ensure access:

  1. Download and install the Citrix Workspace application from the Citrix Website
