Thinfinity® Remote Workspace v6.0 comes with great new features and one of them is the Toolbar customization. You can customize the toolbar parameters and restrict partially or totally the user’s options by eliminating buttons from the Thinfinity® Remote Workspace toolbar’s defaults.

Customizing your Toolbar

In order to start customizing the Toolbar, we will have to open the file web.settings.js.rdp.js located in:

Observe on the code above that for the toolbarRestrictions parameter, all the options are included for visibility purposes.  

To customize your Toolbar, the only thing you will have to do, is to add the restriction after :  “toolbarRestrictions: [

var web.settings.jsvm = {

        createToolbar: true,

        toolbarVisible: true,

        toolbarRestrictions: [

                “actionsMenuBtn”,

        ]

        

On the text editor after you set the parameter it should look like this:
