Pin a Website to Windows 10 Start Menu
If we want to access a file or website very frequently, it is advised to pin it to the Start Menu.
First, open the website in Chrome which you want to pin to Start Menu and wait until it is completely loaded. Once it is completely loaded, you can see the page icon beside the address bar as highlighted in below snapshot.
Drag and drop this page icon to the desktop. Windows 10 creates a shortcut for that website on your desktop.
Now, right click on this shortcut and select “Copy”.
Now, go to the Start Menu, type “Run” and hit enter. Select Run to open it. You can even press “Win Key + R” to open Run.
Once you opened Run, type “shell:programs” in the field box and hit Enter.
Windows File Explorer gets opened up with the programs in Start Menu. Right-click in the window and make sure that, no folder or icon is selected while doing so.
From the options, choose “Paste” and you could see that the copied website shortcut gets pasted here.
Now, you can find this icon in “All Apps” of Start Menu.
To see that, click on the Start button in Windows 10 and click on “All Apps”. There you can see that your website has been pinned to Start Menu. Just click on that, and you will be redirected to that website in Chrome.
You can add them to the tiles. Just select it from App Apps, drag and drop it from that position to the tiles. With Windows 10 it is easy to pin website from Chrome to Start Menu easily.

Right-click 0n it and select Create Shortcuts. Then select where you want to place the shortcut – Desktop and/or Start menu.
