Connect to Azure Virtual Desktop with the Remote Desktop Web client 

This article shows you how to connect to Azure Virtual Desktop with the Remote Desktop Web client. The web client lets you access your Azure Virtual Desktop resources directly from a web browser without needing to install a separate client.

 

Prerequisites

Before you can access your resources, you'll need to meet the prerequisites:

  • Internet access.
  • A supported web browser. While any HTML5-capable web browser should work, we officially support the following web browsers and operating systems:

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

Access your Resources 

When you sign in to the Remote Desktop Web client, you'll see your workspaces. A workspace combines all the desktops and applications that have been made available to you by your admin. You sign in by following these steps:
  1. Open your web browser.
  2. Go to the following URL: https://client.wvd.microsoft.com/arm/webclient/
  3. Sign in with your user account. Once you've signed in successfully, your workspaces should show the desktops and applications that have been made available to you by your admin.
  4. Select one of the icons to launch a session to Azure Virtual Desktop. You may be prompted to enter the password for your user account again, depending on how your admin has configured Azure Virtual Desktop.
  5. A prompt for Access local resources may be displayed asking you to confirm which local resources you want to be available in the remote session. Make your selection, then select Allow.
