Deploy Web Links on Windows Devices via Microsoft Intune

Intune supports a variety of app types, including web apps. A web app is an  client-server application which includes the UI, content, and functionality. Additionally, modern web-hosting platforms commonly offer security, load balancing, and other benefits. You use Microsoft Intune to point to this app type to the groups of users that can access this app. Intune creates a shortcut to the web app on the user’s device. For iOS/iPadOS devices, a shortcut to the web app is added to the home screen. For Android Device Admin devices, a shortcut to the web app is added to the Intune company portal widget and the widget needs to be pinned manually by the user. For Windows devices, a shortcut to the web app is placed on the Start Menu.

To add an app to Intune as a shortcut to an app on the web, do the following:

  1. Sign in to the Microsoft Endpoint Manager admin center.
