I see that Pin to Task Bar is available in the More Tools, but I do NOT use the Task Bar at all.  I MUCH prefer the Start Menu, and normall have all our devices set to Tablet Mode w/Full Screen Start.  I want to always be able to pin websites to my Start Menu.

Thanks @Robert Wade, for the suggestion.
You actually can do one better. You navigate to the ... menu then go to Apps. Select the option that says, INSTALL (Whatever page you're saving.) It will then create a shortcut on your desktop to that website favorite and when you click on it, it will open as a stand alone app. It's really nice.

HOWEVER, if you're looking for the standard open Edge browser. Simply use the More Tools>Pin to Desktop feature. Once it's on your Desktop, you can right click to Pin to Start then delete the Desktop shortcut.
Thanks for the workaround. I much prefer the direct pin-to-Start, though. It's annoying to pin something to the Desktop. That means I have to get OUT of Tablet Mode(which all my cookies are configured for) just to get to the Desktop in order to follow your suggestion. I never use the Deskop, I run all programs in Full Screen or Snapped.
LOL, "cookies" should be "computers".

Oh, no wonder, Robert, that I couldn't make sense of that :beaming_face_with_smiling_eyes:;)

Still waiting to see Pin To Start added to Edge.  I switched to the Canary builds, hoping it would show up there first.

@Robert Wade 

Anxious for that, too.  Surprised wasn't there @ the onset.  Would make a heaps more sense than, Pin to desktop that is there, now.

@Robert Wade  definitely, there are many touch screen devices. i used these 2in1s for about 5 years.   asus, acer, dell, lenovo, hp. surface and all oems,  tablet mode is very important!  and  for tablet mode, pin to start is a must.

 

for about 5 years,  i never used The desktop UI , every thing are in the start menu (start screen) 

@Tom_bae 

Tom, there are a few different approaches.  Example: I hardly ever, super-rarely > Start (haven't since way back in early 7 days); but, that's not using a tablet, either..  But, what is, also, missing from Edge C, right now, that is, also, an absolute must-have is Pin to taskbar!  

Someone said pin to desktop and then, Pin to start from there... That's about as silly as having Pin to desktop, at all, in the 1st place.  Put things that make sense, that people want & need such as, Pin to start & Pin to task bar.

Cheers,
Drew

Same here.
I use for my father’s pc the full screen start menu and have pined all his programs and Websites that he normally uses.

 

He loves that all is accessable from one place with the push of the windows key.

 

But with the new Egde it is way too much complicated for him to pin a new website to start.

 

Please consider to not remove this feature from Edge.

 

@Drachenboot 

As has been said, the silly Pin to desktop has to go.  What MUST exist is Pin to Start & Pin to taskbar, period & soon!

Drew

I wonder why not pin frequently used websites to Edge New / Home Tab tiles or Favorites Bar rather then mix up installed programs with web page links in Start Menu? As the list of installed programs and apps grows, it can get unmanageable and hard to navigate fast.

 

Why not open a few frequently used websites at once as a session? Combine it with The Great Suspender extension to render only focused tab at the session launch. One can also choose in Edge Settings to open last used tabs as a session at browser launch.

 

But if a website shortcut is a live tile, it might make sense to add it to live tiles area of Start Menu.

Hi All.  I just want to make sure that I understand the ask clearly.  What you are asking for is a way to pin specific web sites to the Start menu, so that when you click on them, Microsoft Edge will launch to that page?  Or, are you asking for the ability to pin the browser to the Start menu?  For the second, we do have a work around, because it is a program, it shows up in the All Programs list, you can right click there and Pin To Start.  This isn't the same as the Pin to Desktop option in the more menu, but it is a work around to get you unblocked.  You can also drag and drop the program from the All Programs list to the taskbar, if that is your preferred launching pad.

Thanks, Elliot

My suggestion is: instead of multiple Add To options, offer one option "Create shortcut to site" with choices: 1. on Taskbar , 2. on Desktop, 3. on New Tab, 4. in Start Menu

 

I prefer only shortcuts on New/Home Tab, but for (optional) live tiles - Start Menu is also a good place. Since most website devs don't master live tile art, it might be an interesting task to automate a basic live tile generation from the webpage when warranted by dynamically changing content. But it sounds like a very distant priority. :)

To pile on, in addition to not using the desktop, I don't even have the icons visible. The start menu is a much more organized way to manage shortcuts than the desktop.

You see it as an experienced IT user.
My father uses 3-5 programs and the rest are websites and even that are few. For this the big start menu is excellent as a dashboard with which he can achieve anything he wants.

@Elliot Kirk 

 

Yes, i mean Pin a specific URL as tile that will launch Edge with that URL.

This function is currently in the old Edge (see screenshot)

 

 

But what i like from the new "pin to Desktop" is the new dialog to change the Pin description.

It would be great if we also got this dialogue for "pin to start".

The old Edge always took the name automatically from HTML tag <title>, which is not always ideal.

I respect your point of view, but you might shown your father the wrong habit. There is no advantage in browser launch speed, when opening a website from Start Menu compare to New Tab / Home page tile. But there's a big advantage in work flow, i.e. PC use culture, when proper methods are used to accomplish proper tasks. Try empowering your farther with this way to think, and suddenly he'll start using and installing other software more often. You'll overcome this way natural hesitance of some older folks in using tech. :)

No, how about you respect the voice of the CUSTOMER? I am a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt. I understand processes. I also understand that the VOC drives processes. The more efficient flow for Me is to have everything I use frequently on the START Menu. That's where I want web sites pinned, too. I'm not budging on this.

Hi Robert_Wade,

I'm an Edge user just like you. And in fact suggested exactly what you ask, and more.  The difference is, I don't demand anything since its unethical, counterproductive, and pure choice. What I found Edge team is quite responsive to reasonable suggestions, not only in replies, but more important in factual changes to the browser time permitting. But... they don't have to.

 

Meanwhile, I don't ask you to change or review your habits. Its your choice. But imagine that other folks have their own views and habits too, and share them on the board. You prefer Tablet view, but I find it counterproductive while using a PC. Stay cool. :)

And, here's this...

I have hardly used or opened Start menu since in the early 7 days. Have an all Applications window, put very little on desktop and no desktop icons show, have the Desktop toolbar enabled for that. One can access everything in quicker, handier, more direct ways than bothering with a Start menu :smiling_face_with_smiling_eyes:

Drew

You do you.  I fell in love with the Start Screen in Windows 8 and I've never looked back.  I INSIST on using the full screen Start Menu.  I refuse to put anything on the Task Bar or the Desktop.  The Start Menu is the ONLY way I want to access my preferred setup.  I will not compromise on this, and there is nothing anyone can say that will influence my opinion.

 


@Drew1903 wrote:

I start frequent programs from Taskbar, and other from Windows Search. Some apps are portable, so I create and access shortcuts via Desktop Toolbar in Portable Apps folder, or quickly find them with Everything Search. Newly installed apps are faster to launch from Start Menu, which would benefit from Quick Search field.

 

I try to keep desktop clean, and place frequent webpage shortcuts on Speed Dial, and very few in Favorites, since browser is the primary app to work on the web. I deal with various pro topics, so its useless to keep many favorites or tab sessions unless accompanied by comments, pics, tables, and related info. 

Easy boy, down boy.

I, certainly, was trying to change anyone's mind or MO.

Drew

Any news on this?


You have changed the point "more tools" several times but still no "Pin to Start" 

I must still "install" a webpage as App so i can Pin the created link ("C:\Users\XXXXX\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\") to start.

And than i have the page as App-window not a normal URL-Link what opens in Edge


@Drachenboot 

I will grant you Pin to start is part of Edge and it is likely it will appear in Edge C.  But, in the meantime just thought I would toss this at y'all… whether on Start or in the Applications window, any Store App or User installed software (Program) will appear in both places, naturally, by design & intent.  Why do web pages have to be turned into an App to appear on Start? Because, it is for applications not, web pages. Plus, if a page is pinned there it is creating an additional and unnecessary step (in having to open Start, 1st).

@Drew1903 I also use Start Menu in full screen mode on my HP X360 2in1 but I am getting the impression that MS is trying to de-emphasize Tablet Mode and make it less convenient to use in many different ways, In this case by removing Pin to Start and make you go trough hoops if you want it anyway. Another example would be Sticky Notes. This app only runs in full screen since 1903 release preview making it absolutely useless for Tablet Mode users. MS has acknowledged the problem many months ago but has been quiet about it since then with no solution despite several Sticky Notes update releases.
Win 10 always had 2 modes, Desktop and Tablet. Some prefer Desktop mode and power to them. But that does not mean that other users that have 2in1's have to be forced into giving up their preference.
Please correct me if I'm wrong.

@Deleted 

And understand, all this is doing is creating & throwing shortcuts all over the place & creating unnecessary steps or actions & unnecessarily complicating things, making them more complex & inefficient.  Some may prefer the look & function of an app window instead, of a normal web page for a certain site(s) ... but, if not, then the exercise is an unnecessary & unhelpful effort.

@Jacques Van de Meerssche 

Jacques,

I'm afraid I must disagree about Sticky Notes being full screen only and I will let a photo speak for me...  The size of its window is adjustable, same as any other.  There is no obligation, at all, to run it full screen.

@Jacques Van de Meerssche 

Sure, a User can prefer & use full screen Start.  That's quite irrelevant to a discussion about pinning.  I would suggest pinning whatever wherever and the type of display used for Start are 2 different topics.

Cheers,
Drew

First picture shows Stick Note as it used to be in both modes. It can be resized and placed unobtrusively  in a corner till needed.  Second pic shows tablet mode in 1903. One can indeed use the slider to widen or narrow the window but no vertical resize at all, On top of that, once the slider is used to widen it to the full screen the slider disappears and no more resize is possible as seen in pic 3. The problem has been reported in Feedback hub by numerous users and has been officially been confirmed by Microsoft Sticky Notes developers in the same several months ago stating that there was no solution for now, No solution since then,@Drew1903 

@Drew1903 

 

Sorry, but the Start Screen and, now, the Start Menu is where Tiles are.  Microsoft gave us the ability--and encouraged this use--to pin our favorite sites as live tiles to the Start Screen and Start Menu.  I MUCH prefer the visual organization, access and aesthetics of the things I use ALL being right there.  As I said, ALL our devices are configured for Tablet Mode and Full Screen.  All folders, etc., are removed from the Start Menu and nothing is pinned to the desktop or Task Bar.  It's all on the Start Menu.  THAT is what is most convenient and efficient for us.

 

So, I don't really care if someone thinks the only things that should exist on Start are apps.  That's not how it was sold, and that's not the exclusive way we use it.  The Start should be a central place that we can organize to immediately go to where we want to go, whether that's an app, a folder (yes, we pin a few folders there, too) or website.  Just like we do on our phones.  Consistency. 

 

But it is just ridiculous that we have to essentially make an app out of a website and THEN pin it to Start.  I KNOW the difference between a website and an app.  I don't need the All Apps area cluttered with things that AREN'T apps.  It confuses the issue...especially for those who haven't grown up with all these systems the way I did.

@Robert Wade 

Robert,

We will likely see Pin to start put in Edge C., soon.  It is in Edge & many Users want that maintained. Everyone has differing ways of using the OS.  It's a nice thing about Win10 that is oft more than one approach.  Some don't have or use tiles, at all.  Some don't bother > Start when there is, always access to the taskbar without > to an additional location or step. Some prefer not to change screens to access things.  Some use the Applications window instead, of Start. We are in early test Builds with Edge C.  There are many items missing, at this stage, but, they, including Pin to start, will appear with time & patience.

 

And, you're right, and it's precisely the point... should not have to turn a site into an app; and you don't with Pin to start.

Cheers,
Drew

Thanks for the info, Jacques.  I honestly had not noticed or was aware of the scenario you describe with Sticky Notes in Tablet Mode.
