Not sure what the question is....that's exactly how you'd do that; drop the web browser control onto the form and then set the URL.  Do you need an example?
 The docs for it are here:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/framework/winforms/controls/webbrowser-control-overview

Also be aware that the control is old and emulates IE7 as a default.   You can bring it up to IE 11 with a registry entry. You can find details on that here:

https://weblog.west-wind.com/posts/2011/may/21/web-browser-control-specifying-the-ie-version

 The page discusses in relation to VFP, but it applies to the web browser control and Access as well.   It's the same registry keys that you need to work with, and the blog post is a good one.  It's the one I first used when starting out.
