Clicking on the Admin Portal (which is the section where you’ll do all your day to day activities in Microsoft Intune standalone environments, you’ll see the following page in Microsoft Edge telling you that this application requires Silverlight .

Solution

The solution instead is to use a browser capable of running Silverlight in Windows 10, such as Internet Explorer 11. It will correctly display the Microsoft Intune Admin page as you can see below.
