    Start Menu Icons


    Hello,
    Is there a way to pin a web page shortcut tile to "Start Menu" from Google Chrome maintaining original web page icon.
    Thank You

    one option - once web page open

    click 3 dots - more tools - add to desktop

    pin to start

    then you can open the browser
    click top left corner - pointer icon may be hidden until clicked

    Thanks, However I was looking for a way to retain web page icon when adding to start menu, not Chrome generic.I can do it with Edge ,but then it also opens in Edge.

    I know. It's just an option.
    However, the default website icon should be listed in the menu - not on a tile.

    You could just select from the menu rather than a tile. (not pin)

    Another option is to install the FREE edgeTILE app from the store
    and experiment with web urls and tile pics.

    @ Rayal - sites can be opened into a generic explorer window - or the browser

    edit: need to add this
    When "adding to desktop" there is an option to load into the browser or an explorer window

    The Chrome Apps listing in the menu will launch Chrome listed websites even if Edge is the default.

    If interested you can change the icon in the menu and / or also pin them to the taskbar.

    Anyway, such as it is, I am sure there are other ways.
    You could also launch websites from a new tab page.

    Opera has nice new tab page options including animated wallpapers.

    Maxthon has some interesting tab page features.
    Edge is limited.

    Doesn't Chrome have something similar to the Favorites bar?

    Everyone has their preference, but I must say; You went through all that with no solution and you say Edge is limited? Edge does all that the OP wanted to do plus more. Here's my Edge new tab page:
