Citrix/RDS: Publish Internet Explorer without Address Bar


Publishing IE for a web application without address bar is easier than you think. Simply publish the following VBScript or PowerShell script to launch IE without address bar and go to specific intranet website.

Copy either one of the script into Notepad and save as LaunchIE.vbs for vbscript OR LaunchIE.PS1 for PowerShell. Change the website address in the script. Run the script to make sure it works as you expected. Publish the script in Citrix or RDS.

Here is the VBScript Code. You can download this script from here: http://sdrv.ms/1cijdke
