VDI Client Registry Settings Follow


Registry keys can be used for troubleshooting or fine tuning performance with your VDI setup. Once you have edited a registry key, restart the Zoom client for the change to take effect. Using registry keys for non-troubleshooting purposes is not recommended due to the large amount of files generated. All registry keys listed will work in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE (HKLM) and HKEY_CURRENT_USER (HKCU) directories.
