    Adding youtube as an icon app in the start menu


    Hello.
    I have a new 2-1 table computer, which my kid is using.
    I would like to have youtube as an large icon in start menu (to pin it etc..).
    Is it possible (I assume that google is not good friend of Microsoft ...)

    Cheers

    Hello Swissexcel,

    If you like, you could use the same method below in Windows 10 to "Pin to Start" the YouTube site from IE11.

    You can drag the tab to the desktop thereby creating a shortcut. Alternatively you can also use pin to taskbar for Chrome and then bin the youtube page.

    thanks for your answer. I am trying to create a shortcut on the start menu of Win 10 (not on the desktop).

    I have a small kid at home - I want him to have one click option to open youtube (and give me peace of mind and extra time to sleep)

    In the Chrome Menu, create the shortcut in the following manner, then delete the desktop copy:
