How to Turn On or Off Apps for Websites in Windows 10

information   Information
Apps for websites is a feature that uses web-to-app linking to associate an app with a website.

Apps for websites was first introduced in Windows 10 build 14342, but there were no apps available at the time that supported this.

Starting with Windows 10 build 15007, clicking links to websites that support web-to-app linking will now open that page in the respective app.

Some websites can be opened by an app or a browser. You can turn off an app to open the website with a browser, or turn on an app to open the website in the app.

This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off apps to open websites with the app or browser for your account in Windows 10.



Here's How:

1. Open Settings, and click/tap on the Apps icon.

2. Click/tap on Apps for websites on the left side, and turn On (default) or Off any installed apps that support web-to-app linking for what you want. (see screenshot below)

3. When finished, you can close Settings if you like.
