How to launch application from web browser on Windows and macOS?

I have seen how apps like Zoom launch their application on desktop whenever we click Join Meeting on the browser. I am unable to figure out how to do that. I tried putting the link of the app as URL but that just started downloading the application. I just need to open the app and do nothing else. Is there any way to implement that using JavaScript?



Custom URI Scheme will help you to achieve this for your app.
For eg: zoommtg, zoomus schemes are used by Zoom
example: Windows/Mac client: zoommtg://

iOS/Android Client: zoomus://
