URLs to specific resources
Create static URLs to specific resources. This would allow for bookmarking specific resources in a browser and even putting those shortcuts on end-user desktops and start menus. If Windows Hello SSO were used for initial authentication then the process of clicking on a link to a resource would be seamless.
We are gathering feedback and suggestions for this feature request. We have not yet begun working on this feature but we are aware of the potential positive impact for our users, particularly in the Education space.
If you have specific feedback for this feature, please let us know in the comments.
- What will you use specific resource URLs for?
- What types of sites/portals will you want to link from?
- How do you expect user authentication to work when redirected to a specific resource?
- Will you use links to desktops? Remote Apps? Both?

Definitely would be useful for the likes of Office Apps, browser, and as suggested already for specific sites/URLs without the need to open a full web browser app each time.

As part of the "Access to local resources" I would like to see local drives added along with Clipboard and Printers.

I am not sure if I understand the initial suggestion correctly, but to clarify, I would like to be able to start a specific application window by giving the name of the application in the url string e.g.
and to pass parameters to it
For the RemoteApp HTML5 client, I'd like to see drive redirection in addition to the existing clipboard and printer redirection.

I would recommend looking at Clientless RDP for Workspace 365. It allows you to create links to specific applications using an HTML5 client: https://www.workspace365.net/en/hybrid-workspace-365/

I agree with Freek Berson

It would be great to have this feature as it would also allow to create direct links to individual RemoteApps on e.g. the Office365 Application launcher, SharePoint sites or other 3rd party application launcher websites.
