Connect from a web browser

The web client lets you access your Windows Virtual Desktop Preview 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

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
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 Windows Virtual Desktop web client and sign in with your user account.

Note

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.
