Edge - Desktop Icon for web app?

I don't even know if that's the correct Subject.   So I somehow created an App in Edge (Settings/Apps) and then a Desktop Icon for it.  I'll be honest in saying I have no clue how I did it but I like it.  The App was for Outlook in O365 if it matters.

 

I'm in the Dev Ring BTW

 

So:

 

1. What's the process for doing something like this?

2. Needs to be a little more apparent on how to do it in Edge.

@John Nash You can create "app" like browsers by clicking Menu > More Tools > Pin to Desktop. You can also invoke Edge like so:

 

   msedge.exe --app=https://example.com/

A newer and cool solution is create shortcuts for your preffered websites and they opening like a app ... access any website, click in ( . . . ) Edge Menu > Apps >Install this site as an app , than click in Manage Apps (in same menu) put mouse over icon and with right click select Create shortcuts (on desktop or Startmenu) ... I always wait for this feature!!! thanx Edge Team!!!
