According to this site https://developer.salesforce.com/lightning Lightning App Builder can be used for both mobile devices and desktop, but I cannot find a way on how a Lightning Page can be opened in a Desktop Browser?

Except for the url <salesforceInstance>.salesforce.com/one/one.app, are there other ways I can open it in my browser?

  • Also, in one of the sessions with Salesforce, I have heard that Lightning App for Desktop is in Salesforce's product roadmap and will be launched soon. I expect to hear some official announcement during the Dreamforce this year. – Ashish Agarwal Jul 22 '15 at 3:27

I'm afraid the text is incorrect. Lightning Pages can only be added to Salesforce1 (i.e. the mobile app) with Summer 15.

As this functionality is not supported OOB for Summer 15, you can work around Lightning's limitations by embedding your Lightning App in a Visualforce page.

<apex:page>
  <apex:iframe src="/one/one.app"></apex:iframe>
</apex:page>

Note: If your app is named "expenseTracker" and does not use a custom namespace, use "/c/expenseTracker.app" as the iframe's src.

  • The question was about Lightning Pages created in the Lightning App Builder, they are confusingly enough not the same as Lightning Apps (.app). Lightning Pages do not have a public, supported URL. – Kristian Jul 24 '15 at 2:41
  • Refused to display 'mydomain.lightning.force.com/one/one.app' in a frame because it set 'X-Frame-Options' to 'SAMEORIGIN' guess this iframe trick doesnt work after recent update – Pranay Jaiswal Oct 25 '15 at 4:09

Currently you can only use Lightning Components in the Salesforce1 Mobile App or a standalone app. Lightning Components have been built to be mobile first, but with responsive design in mind. So you can use them for both mobile and desktop (as a standalone app).
