    I've just upgraded to Win 10 from 8.1. However, I cannot find the YouTube app to click on or pin to the taskbar. Each time I want YouTube I have to visit the site. On 8.1 I just clicked the taskbar icon. Does anyone know how I can restore YouTube to the taskbar? Note: It does not show up as an app in the start menu.

    Thank you.
    Go to your Desktop and right-click. Hover on New then click shortcut. In the box put in "https://www.youtube.com/" then click next. Name the icon Youtube and click finish. You can stop here, but if you want it to have the youtube icon keep reading. Go here, Youtube icons, free icons in iSuite Revoked, (Icon Search Engine) and then click DOWNLOAD ICO (save it into a place you can find again). Go back to the shortcut and right-click. click properties, web document, change icon. Go on Browse and find the image then click open. Then at the bottom click apply, then ok.
    Hope this helps ;-)

    Why not just use Chrome? It's a better browser than Edge anyway.
