How to access AVD

Azure Virtual Desktop App

The AVD Web Client is the recommended and easiest method to access AVD. For users needing multiple monitor support, Microsoft has a preview release of the Azure Virtual Desktop App. Note: only use the Azure Virtual Desktop App, not the Remote Desktop Store App.
