Create shortcuts to Chrome apps

Since it wasn't immediately obvious, I decided to write this down.

enable the app launcher


If you don't see the app you want, scroll until you see it.

Method 1
Right click and choose "create shortcuts..."



Method 2
You can also create a shortcut manually from an open application (this actually works for any application)

Get the shortcut info

- Right click on the icon in the taskbar

- Right click on the program's name at the top

- Select properties




Create a new shortcut

- Right click on your desktop and choose New > Shortcut


- Copy the Target from the properties window to the location box and hit Next


- Name it whatever you want

Ok good. You can stop here or change the icon.

Here's how:

Change the shortcut's icon

- In the properties window that you have open, click "change icon"

- Copy the path that you see under "look for icons in this file:"

- Right click your new shortcut and choose properties

- Click "change icon" and paste your path in there.

- Press enter or OK and the icon should show up.
