Many native programming languages have components that you can take advantage of to show a webpage in a desktop application.

C# - web view
Python - pywebview

Also the HTML control from Syncfusion:

HTMLUI Control
HTMLUI is a Windows Forms control that renders Hypertext Markup Language (HTML). Its functionality is similar to a web browser used for display purposes.

The community edition of the controls is free to use for small shops.
