Disney+ is a streaming service owned by Walt Disney Entertainment, and it has a library of movies and TV shows that are exclusively owned by Disney.
This includes traditional Walt Disney animations and TV shows (Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, etc.), as well as top-grossing movies that are simply owned by Disney studios (X-Men, The Avengers franchise, etc.) .
For Windows users, it was originally only available as a web app that could be accessed via the web browser, and there’s still no dedicated app to access it, unless you count Xbox’s.
Well, if you want a much simpler way to access Disney+, similar to how you would Netflix or HBO GO, we’ll show you how you can create your own Disney+ app for Windows 10.
Note: For this to work, you must have Microsoft Edge installed on your PC.
How to install a Disney + app on Windows 10?
Just like any other website that lacks a dedicated Windows 10 app, there is always the option to create a Progressive Web App through Microsoft Edge.
Here’s how you can create your own Disney+ Progressive Web App:
Go to the Disney+ website through your Microsoft Edge browser
Once the website loads, access the settings menu via the three dots in the top right corner of the Edge UI
Select Apps and then choose Install this site as an app
Give the app a name and description, and tap Install
The Disney+ website will now be installed on your Windows 10 PC as an app with a XAML shell, and you’ll have created your own Disney+ app that can be used to access the streaming service with a single click.
Furthermore, it will be available in the All Apps list, just like any other UWP app you can install through the Microsoft Store.
Plus, the shortcut can be customized, pinned to the Start menu, or even pushed to be available on your desktop.
Note: The steps mentioned above are the standard procedure that can be used to create a proprietary app for any website, not just Disney+, so be sure to use this method to create even more apps for your frequently visited website.
