Even If You Don’t Use Edge, You Need This Trick
If you’ve gone ahead and update your Windows 10 machine to the Fall Creators Update , there’s one tiny but super useful feature that might have you considering using Edge once in a while.
Pin Sites With Edge
When you open up a site you frequently visit in Edge, you can pin this to the Windows Taskbar. Just load the page, open up the Edge menu, and click Pin this page to the taskbar. This will place a direct link to that site at your fingertips, making it easy to load the page with just one click.
Pin Sites With Other Browsers
Regardless of what your default browser is, the pinned page will open in Edge, and Microsoft has not extended this feature to other browsers, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a handy workaround you can use for other browsers.
Let’s say Chrome is your browser of choice. Open up the site in Chrome, select the URL, and drag and drop it to your desktop to create a shortcut. Now drag and drop that shortcut into your taskbar and it will be automatically pinned.
If you want to remove a website shortcut from your taskbar, whether it was created in Edge or any other browser, just right-click it and click Unpin from taskbar.
If the Fall Creators Update hasn’t rolled out to your machine yet and you’ve chosen not to force the update , you can simply use the workaround above. Another alternative would be to pin the site as a tile in your Start menu. You can do this by opening the Edge menu and clicking Pin this page to Start.
