N.B On initial login, you might be presented with an additional security warning asking whether you wish to allow access to information on a device attached to your computer. This is nothing to be alarmed about – Citrix Workspace is trying to access your computer's devices such as printers, webcams and shared drives. You can either block or permit access, however, we would recommend permitting access to such devices. This can be set on each login or alternatively to permanently permit, or block, access select Do not ask me again for this... to stop the warning showing on each login.
