Connect to Azure Virtual Desktop with the web client

Important

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

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

Note

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

Supported operating systems and browsers

Important

As of September 30, 2021, the Azure Virtual Desktop web client no longer supports Internet Explorer. We recommend that you use Microsoft Edge to connect to the web client instead. For more information, see our blog post.

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

Browser Supported OS Notes
Microsoft Edge Windows, macOS, Linux, Chrome OS Version 79 or later
Apple Safari macOS Version 11 or later
Mozilla Firefox Windows, macOS, Linux Version 55 or later
Google Chrome Windows, macOS, Linux, Chrome OS Version 57 or later

Access remote resources feed

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

Important

We plan to start automatically redirecting to a new web client URL at https://client.wvd.microsoft.com/arm/webclient/index.html as of April 18th, 2022. The URLs at https://rdweb.wvd.microsoft.com/arm/webclient/index.html and https://www.wvd.microsoft.com/arm/webclient/index.html will still be available, but we recommend you update your bookmarks to the new URL at https://client.wvd.microsoft.com/arm/webclient/index.html as soon as possible.

Note

If you're using Azure Virtual Desktop (classic) without Azure Resource Manager integration, connect to your resources at https://client.wvd.microsoft.com/webclient/index.html instead.

If you're using the US Gov portal, use https://rdweb.wvd.azure.us/arm/webclient/index.html.

To connect to the Azure China portal, use `https://rdweb.wvd.azure.cn/arm/webclient/index.html>.

Note

If you've already signed in with a different Azure Active Directory account than the one you want to use for Azure 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.
