Open a Specific App Through URI Pathway on Hololens

Hello!

Ultimate Goal: Display a website in a Unity Application on the Microsoft Hololens 2 where the user cannot see or modify the URL.

Current Approach: Turn the website into a Microsoft Edge App (Open up website in Microsoft Edge, Click the "...", select Apps, and then select Turn this website into an app). After doing this and opening up the app I just made, the website I want the user to visit comes up without a url address bar to change.

Problem: I do not know how to get the URI pathway to the new Microsoft Edge Website App I created. So the app exists among the Hololens' All Apps list but I cannot open the website app/display within my Unity application.

How do I find the URI pathway to the Microsoft Edge website app I created? Or, is there a better way to display a webpage without allowing the user to see and modify the url address bar?

Hello, welcome to Microsoft Q&A,

Creating a website app via Edge is a user’s behavior, and this Edge app behavior cannot be customized. Currently there is no built-in webview for HoloLens, but you may join the discussion in https://github.com/microsoft/MixedRealityToolkit-Unity/issues/7586 to share your ideas and find workarounds.
