In WinRT, you can use Windows.System.Launcher.LaunchUriAsync to launch the default app associated with the specified URI. For a web link, the default browser would be used.

MSDN: Launcher.LaunchUriAsync(Uri) | launchUriAsync(Uri) method


You can use Windows.System.Launcher to launch files and URL's...

  • Windows.System.Launcher.LaunchUriAsync(Uri) will launch a given Uri with the default application. If it's a link it will open with default web browser. You can use file:/// scheme to open an network resource, but not resources on the local file system.

  • Windows.System.Launcher.LaunchFileAsync(IStorageFile) will launch the default application for the given file.

Both that methods has an optional second parameter of type Windows.System.LauncherOptions that customizes the launch.
