Having quick access to frequently used or difficult to remember websites can save time and frustration. Whether you're using Chrome, Firefox or Edge, you can add a shortcut to any site to your Windows 1

0 taskbar or the Start menu.

Google Chrome

Navigate to the site you want to pin. Click on the three vertical points in the upper-right corner of Chrome, hover over "More Tools" and click "Create Shortcut."

  Create a shortcut in Chrome

In the popup menu, rename the shortcut if desired and click "Create." This automatically creates an icon on your Windows desktop.

By default, the Chrome web page opens as a tab in a normal Chrome browser window. You can select the "Open as window" option for Chrome to open the page in its own window with its own taskbar icon when you click the shortcut.

 Creating a Chrome Shortcut

From the desktop, right-click the shortcut and click either "Pin to Start" or "Pin to Taskbar." You can now delete the shortcut on the desktop.

If you set the site to open as a window, it immediately opens as its own window. You can then right-click the shortcut on the taskbar and select "Pin to Taskbar" without using the shortcut on the desktop.

Firefox

Create a shortcut to Firefox on your desktop. You can do this by typing "Firefox" in your Start menu, right-clicking on the icon and clicking "Open File Location."

In the new File Explorer window, right-click Firefox and click "Create Shortcut." A prompt will say: "Windows cannot create a shortcut here. Do you want the shortcut to be placed on the desktop instead?" Click "Yes."

 Create a Firefox browser shortcut

Right-click the new The Firefox icon on the desktop and click "Properties." In the "Target" field, enter the full URL of the site you want to get after the quotation mark, here's an example of what the "Target" field should look like:

Right-click the shortcut from the desktop and click either "Pin to Start" or "Pin to Taskbar." You can now delete the shortcut on the desktop.

The New Edge

Microsoft's new Chromium-based Edge browser works the same way as Google Chrome. To attach any site to a taskbar simply opens the "Settings and more" menu (Alt + F, or click on the three horizontal points in the top right corner of the browser). Hover over "More Tools" and click "Pin to Taskbar."
