Pin Website to Taskbar

Pinning a Website to the Windows 10 Taskbar

With the old Internet Explorer it was easy to just drag the icon from the address line to the taskbar. That went away in the Edge browser.

But there is good news. The ability to pin a website that you visit frequently to your taskbar so you can get to it in just one click is coming back!

Instead of dragging the icon, in the coming update to Edge there will be an option as shown in the illustrations here.

Click the three-dot icon in the upper right of the browser window. The drop-down menu will have the option “Pin this page to the taskbar”.

It will be added to the taskbar and show the website favicon. A single click then opens Edge and goes right to the page.

Three cheers!!

    Nice! I have Win10 on my laptop, and I can’t tell you the hoops I had to jump through to get a work-around for this very thing!
