This use-case demonstrates publishing a single application - rather than an entire desktop environment - to the client. Users may choose between several available applications during login, which then run maximized in the session window with no additional desktop environment widgets. Shown in one of the images above is an example of a Linux application (Inkscape) being run on a local Windows 10 desktop via ThinLinc.

Besides making applications available without the need to install them locally, administrators may make use of this feature to ensure users are running a specific version or configuration of an application. It also allows applications to be run in a restricted environment or network from any device, even remotely, without compromising security. Single application publishing is a flexible and powerful feature of ThinLinc.
