How to install a website as a Windows 10 app for quick access.

Microsoft has a lot of apps in its store but some popular apps are missing and can only be accessed in a browser. Take Youtube for example. There is no official for it and the browser is the only way to view your videos. However, there is a feature in the Microsoft Edge browser that lets you install the website as an app that you can then pin to the Start menu or to the taskbar for quick access and I'm going to show you how to do just that.

What you will need:

How to install a website as an app.
  1. Navigate to www.youtube.com .
  2. Click the 3 horizontal dots in the top right corner.
  3. Click Apps and select Install this site as an app.
  4. Click Install.
The app will now show in the Start menu. Right-click on it and select Pin to Start. To pin the app to the taskbar, right-click and select More and click Pin to taskbar. Now the site will look just like any Windows 10 app just one click away.
