How to change text in Citrix Storefront


Heres a nice little tip that will allow you to quickly and easily change most text within Citrix StoreFront Receiver for Web sites.

Ever wanted to change the text that appears within Citrix Receiver for Web. Turns out theres a handy dandy cheat sheet built into StoreFront for those of us who are not code junkies, heres how to access it and also implement your desired changes into StoreFront.

Firstly logon to your StoreFront server and explore to the following location(change “en” for your local language along with the Drive letter and Store name):


Inside it you will see a single file with a file name similar to ctxs.strings_%Random%.js



Now edit this file with notepad and you will get an extensive list of the current text that is displayed by Citrix StoreFront to the user. [DO NOT ACTUALLY CHANGE THIS FILE].

For ease of access heres a current list of my js file at the bottom of my blog post.

All you need to do now is find the text you wish to change and copy the whole line and then ensure notepad is open with admin rights.

Open the strings.en.js file (again substitute en for your language) from “C:\inetpub\wwwroot\Citrix\StoreWeb\custom”

Input your copied string into the file in-between the {} as exampled below:

(function ($) {
$.localization.customStringBundle(“en”, {
Desktops: “VDI”,
AllApps: “Stuff”,

Save this file and attempt to logon and navigate to the area where you are expecting to see the changes to text. Once tested ok propagate the changes to all the other servers in the group.


You can see another example blog post I wrote HERE detailing how to correct the spelling of Favourites within StoreFront.

  1. One of the supported texts “RememberLogonMethod: “Remember my logon method”,”. How do you change the color font on that?
