You can change the basic functionality of the main Reflection window in a variety of ways. For example, you can specify startup macros and actions. You can also change the appearance of the window (for example, by setting Reflection to open in the TouchUx interface mode as shown below).
Workspace settings include all of the settings you can access from the Workspace Settings dialog box.
You can customize workspace settings in two different ways:
Customize Workspace Settings Directly With Reflection to configure the settings in Reflection. Then save the settings in the application.access file. It’s easier to verify your settings with this approach but you’ll need to package the setting as shown in Package Sessions and Custom Settings Files.
Configure And Automatically Package Workspace Settings, using the Installation Customization Tool to configure the settings. When you use this approach, the settings are automatically packaged in an MSI file.
To customize workspace settings from Reflection
Open the Workspace Settings dialog box.
The steps depend on your user interface.

Configure which type of user interface to use (Reflection provides four interfaces), its look and feel, and other user interface options.
Set up the workspace to access sessions that are centrally managed on a Micro Focus Management and Security Server.
Choose whether to participate in the Product Experience Improvement program.
Change the settings as needed and then save them.
Close and reopen Reflection and then verify the settings.
To package this file for deployment, see Package Configuration Files.
NOTE:These settings are saved in the Application.settings file. You can deploy this file to one of the following locations:
Location for a single user: [AppDataFolder] The full path of the Roaming folder for the current user. The default is C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\. \Micro Focus\Reflection\Desktop\v16.1
Location for all users: [CommonAppDataFolder] The full path to application data for all users. The default is C:\Program Data. \Micro Focus\Reflection\Desktop\v16.1
To find out more about configuring workspace settings, see Set up Workspace Settings in the Micro Focus Reflection Desktop Help.
When you use the Installation Customization Tool to configure workspace settings, the custom configuration files that include the settings are automatically added to an MSI.
CAUTION:Do not use the Installation Customization tool to configure Trust Center settings. This approach should be used only to configure settings in the Configure Workspace Defaults, Configure Workspace Attributes, Configure User Interface, Configure Centralized management, or Configure Usage Data dialog boxes.
You’ll probably want to configure these settings on your workstation first to make sure you get the results you want. Then reconfigure these settings as shown below.
To create a custom workspace with the Installation Customization Tool
From your administrative installation point, open the Installation Customization Tool from a shortcut or by typing the following command line:
<path_to_setup> \setup.exe /admin
From thedialog box, select , and then click .
From the navigation pane, clickand choose whether to install the workspace settings for all users of a machine or only for specific users.
On the navigation pane, click.
From the list of, select and then click .
Thedialog box opens in a separate window.
Under, click the type of setting to configure (for example, ).
Configure the settings just as you would if you opened the workspace settings dialog box from the product.
Save the package (.msi) file and close the Installation Customization Tool. You can deploy the package file as it is, or you can edit it to add additional files.
NOTE:These settings are automatically saved in the Application.settings file. The package .msi file is automatically configured to deploy this file to one of the following locations, depending on which option you selected when you specified install locations.
If you selected, the file is deployed to:
[AppDataFolder] The full path of the Roaming folder for the current user. The default is C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\. \Micro Focus\Reflection\Desktop\v16.1
If you selected, the file is deployed to:
[CommonAppDataFolder] The full path to application data for all users. The default is C:\Program Data. \Micro Focus\Reflection\Desktop\v16.1
