Connect to Windows Virtual Desktop with the web client


This content applies to Windows Virtual Desktop with Azure Resource Manager Windows Virtual Desktop objects. If you're using Windows Virtual Desktop (classic) without Azure Resource Manager objects, see this article.

The web client lets you access your Windows Virtual Desktop resources from a web browser without the lengthy installation process.


The web client doesn't currently have mobile OS support.

Supported operating systems and browsers

While any HTML5-capable browser should work, we officially support the following operating systems and browsers.

Browser Supported OS Notes
Microsoft Edge Windows
Internet Explorer Windows Version 11 or later
Apple Safari macOS
Mozilla Firefox Windows, macOS, Linux Version 55 or later
Google Chrome Windows, macOS, Linux, Chrome OS

Access remote resources feed

In a browser, navigate to the Azure Resource Manager-integrated version of the Windows Virtual Desktop web client at and sign in with your user account.


If you're using Windows Virtual Desktop (classic) without Azure Resource Manager integration, connect to your resources at instead.


If you've already signed in with a different Azure Active Directory account than the one you want to use for Windows Virtual Desktop, you should either sign out or use a private browser window.

After signing in, you should now see a list of resources. You can launch resources by selecting them like you would a normal app in the All Resources tab.
