    Apps on taskbar


    I use Google Keep a lot as an easy reference to phone numbers and passwords etc and have it pinned to my 7 machines taskbars for quick access.

    Now in my 10 machines I cannot find a way of accessing Keep without having to open a browser tab and click on the app.
    I have Googled for a fix but nothing is really doing what I want t to the only thing is saving the bookmark and then dragging it to a spot on the bookmark bar but again this means the browser has to be open first.

    This is really time consuming when having the app on the taskbar is so easy - so any ideas please??

    Near as I can figure, you'll need to create a desktop app from within Chrome's menu, specifying that it open as a window, then drag that to your taskbar.
    It'll still open the browser but in it's own dedicated window.
