Download Azure Portal Desktop Application For Windows

If you’re in Azure on a regular basis like I am, you might find it a bit more convenient to launch the dedicated app as apposed to using a browser. Using the dedicated app allows you to quickly configure and view details in Azure while maintaining visibility on what you have in your browser. For those that think this might be something for them, I’m going to share the details on how to download azure portal desktop application for windows. Like I said, I’m almost always in Azure so it’s super convenient for me personally and thought it might be worthwhile checking for yourself.

Download The Azure Portal Desktop App

Whenever I hop on a new machine I always seem to have trouble finding the URL to download the app because Google usually displays irrelevant
results so I thought it would be useful for others (as well as myself) to link to the page here so I can quickly get it when I need it.

 

Azure Portal Desktop Application Experience

The Azure Portal Desktop Application experience is almost identical to the browser version, with very few caveats. One minor pet peeve for me personally is the fact that I can’t do a ctrl+f to find text on the page. It’s not a deal breaker but it would come in handy from time to time.

Aside from that I think it’s great. The app version has some left and right arrow buttons for easier navigation as well as the minimize, maximize and close buttons that come standard with any Windows application. Also, if you’re a fan of dark mode, you can easily switch to that theme with the click of a button. Here’s a quick preview.
