There may be a simple answer to this, but how can I transfer files through Citrix? Example, if I connect to my work laptop from my home PC and I want to transfer an excel document to work, how would I go about that? Thanks

What do you mean connect to you work "laptop" through your home PC... How are you connecting to citrix?

If you are connecting to citrix at work through either your home PC / Laptop your local drives are usually mapped as V:\ onwards. E.g. In a Citrix session, if you open Windows Explorer your C:\ is presented as V:\ drive.

Ofcourse restrictions and policies can be put in place to disable this so it all depends.

enable client drive mappings (if not already done so) and you should be able to transfer files between your client and your servers.

On your published app/desktop you will notice a V:\ which is your client C:\
