Problem with registering the website as an application

Jakub Augustyniak 0 Reputation points


I have written a simple web application and I would like to register it as an application in the Edge browser. The problem is that for a website that is run from disk, this option is inactive. Is there any other way I can register a local site as an application? I use Edge on Hololens 2, but the desktop version is the same. Please help

    Hi @Jakub Augustyniak

    Do you mean using Install this site as an app in Edge? If so, you can first install any on-line website in Edge and create shortcut in desktop.

    Then right click the shortcut and select Properties. Edit the Target: you can remove all parts after '...\msedge_proxy.exe" ' and add '-app=C:<path to your HTML file>' like below:
