Windows 10: Web site icons on start window? Solved

    Web site icons on start window?


    Is it possible to ad a web site icon/tile to the start window.
    For some reason the google web site icon is there, but I would like to add a few more of web sites I frequently visit.
    The right click on a web site URL does not give the option of creating a tile/icon on the start menu.Click image for larger version.

    Navigate to a page you'd like to save and follow steps 1 thru 5.
    (I don't know why they call it 'taskbar' in steps 3 and 4!)

    Thank you very much.
    Just one more question, how can I enter the text like you have on the tile?

    Right click on the tile and switch to at least 'Medium'
