Note: this method allows upload to Horizon only, and will not work to download a file from Horizon for transfer to your personal computer. 

Alternatively, if you use cloud storage such as Microsoft OneDrive or Google Drive, you can utilize those services for file transfer through a web browser in the virtual desktop.
