    I use Chrome (and, of course) Edge. I already have a "Favourites folder" but I was hoping it would make like easier if I could add individual favourite websites and "personalise" the name on the tile. I am very grateful for your help.

    With Chrome got to the hamburger icon and select More Tools then select Add to desktop. This will create an "app"(more a link with icon & tile) It will create a desktop icon, and in all apps a folder called "Chrome Apps" when opened it will have the link. You then can put this on your Start Menu.

    If you do not like the name given, right click the tile, select "More", then Open file location. Right click the shortcut there and rename it.

    Also on Chrome's Apps page it will have the icon too.

    You're welcome. But for Edge, I haven't found the shortcut to change the name. In that case, dalchina's option is probably the only way.

    Unfortunately, the icon only ever shows as the standard Google icon even though the File Location listing and the Chrome Apps listing shows the correct, specific icons. I read somewhere that this is a bug in Windows 10, unless anyone else knows different!

anyway to change the names of apps pinned to start menu
Windows 10 out of the Edge Browser allows almost anything to be pinned to Start Menu which is great but many of the names are too long, so once again, can names of apps be changed that are pinned to start menu? Thanks TC
