How to Pin Websites to Start Menu in Windows

Instead of having to bookmark important Web sites, then access bookmarks to open pages, you can pin a Website to the Taskbar for easier access, time-consuming.

Pin the Edge site to the Start menu

To pin a webpage in Edge, just open the page, click Menu and select Pin this page to Start.

This will create a shortcut to the site in the Start menu of Windows 10. If you want to delete it then right click on the shortcut and select Unpin from Start.

Pin the Chrome web page to the Start menu

  • First, you need to visit the website you want to add to the Start menu in Chrome and create a shortcut in the Bookmarks bar.
  • In the Chrome browser, open the Chrome Apps page by typing chrome://apps in the address bar.
  • Drag the newly created bookmarks (bookmarks) to the Chrome Apps page.
  • Right-click on the newly created Chrome application and select Create shortcuts.
  • Select Desktop and Start Menu and click OK.
  • Find that site in the Windows Cortana tool.
  • The webpage created will be displayed as an app in the search results. Right-click on it and select Pin to start.

You should now see the Chrome icon in the Start menu and just click on it to open the webpage you have pinned.

Note: You can rename the shortcut by right-clicking the application icon and selecting Open file location. The Windows Explorer window will appear, find the shortcut in the Start menu application list here and you can rename the shortcut as you like.
