How To Pin a Website to Taskbar on Windows

On the taskbar, you can pin your favorite programs and folders so that you can access them with just a single click. However, did you know that you can also pin websites to the taskbar? For example, if you have a website that you use frequently, pinning it to the taskbar makes it easy to open it directly. In this article, we’ll show how to pin a website to the taskbar on Windows 10 & 11. Let’s get started.

Note: The steps shown below will work in Windows 11, 10, 8, and 7.

Steps to Pin a Website to the Taskbar

To pin your favorite websites to the taskbar, the first thing you should do is create a shortcut for it and then drag it onto the taskbar. You can do it using Chrome, Edge, and Firefox. I will show you how to do it using all three browsers. Follow the steps relevant to your browser.

Using Google Chrome

1. First, open the Google Chrome browser if it is not already opened.

2. In the browser, open the website you want to pin to the taskbar.

3. Once the website loads, click the three dots menu icon and select Save and Share > Create Shortcut.

4. Click the Create button.


5. This will create a desktop shortcut for the website. Next, drag and drop the shortcut on your taskbar to pin the website.


That is it. You’ve pinned a website to the taskbar. From now on, click on it and the website will open in the Chrome browser.

Using the Edge Browser

The Edge browser provides the Pin to Taskbar option which makes the entire thing much easier than when using Chrome. Here’s how.

1. Open the new Edge browser and go to the website you want to pin to the taskbar.

2. Once the website is loaded, click on the three dots menu icon in the top right corner and select the More tools > Pin to taskbar option.


3. You will see a notification asking if you want to pin the website to the taskbar, click Yes.

That is it. The website is pinned and every time you click on it the website will be opened in the Edge browser.


Using Firefox

Firefox users had to go through the manual route.

1. First, right-click on the desktop and select the New > Shortcut option.


2. Now, add the below path in the blank field while replacing https://example.com with the actual web address. Click the Next button.

“C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe” -url https://example.com


3. Type a name of your choice in the blank field and click Finish.


4. You’ve created the website shortcut. Now, drag and drop it onto the taskbar.


That is it. From now on, click on the taskbar icon, and then the website will open in Firefox.

And there you have it! It’s that simple to pin any website to the taskbar. If you have any questions, comment below and we’ll answer and help. If you like this article, do check out how to pin folders to the taskbar and how to back up pinned taskbar items.
