In this quick post, I will present the Azure Portal Desktop App which is still in a Preview version. In this desktop app version of Azure Portal can manage our azure resources, execute scripts via cloud shell etc.

Download the Azure Portal Desktop App

First must be downloaded the desktop app. You can do this from this URL https://portal.azure.com/App/Download and select Download the Azure Portal app.

Install The Azure Portal Desktop App

Double-click the AzurePortalInstaller.exe file to extract the files into the path C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\AzurePortal\Production.

Azure Portal Desktop App UI

As the image below shows the Azure Portal Desktop App is a web UI into a windows form. You can do the same actions as the web version as well.

Cloud Shell

You can have a complete experience of the Azure Portal into this desktop app by running cloud shell. In the image below I have opened an Azure bash shell, which is the same with the one in the web version of the Azure Portal.
