Configure web-to-app linking with app URI handlers


This policy setting determines whether Windows supports web-to-app linking with app URI handlers.

Enabling this policy setting enables web-to-app linking so that apps can be launched with a http(s) URI.

Disabling this policy disables web-to-app linking and http(s) URIs will be opened in the default browser instead of launching the associated app.

If you do not configure this policy setting, the default behavior depends on the Windows edition. Changes to this policy take effect on reboot.


Supported on: At least Windows 10 Server, Windows 10 or Windows 10 RT
