How do I keep the launch.ica files on my computer so I do not have to go to the Citrix web site every time I want to launch an application in Citrix?
In order to keep the launch.ica files, you need to open them in a Text Editor such as TextEdit which comes with Mac OS X. To do this, you need to save the ica file first by going to http://citrix.mit.edu and downloading the appropriate launch.ica file.
Once you have the file on your desktop, hold down the control key and click on the file with your mouse cursor.
- Go to Open With > Other...
- Navigate to TextEdit which should be in your Applications folder and click Open.
- Once you have it open, look for the line that has RemoveICAFile=yes and change the "yes" to "no".
- Save the file and quit TextEdit.
You should now be able to double-click the .ica file and it should open the Citrix client and run as usual and then stay there once you quit.
