The Start menu starts again in Windows 10 with both Windows 7 and Windows 7. One of the best things about the new Start menu is that you can pin almost anything on the right-hand side of the Start Menu. That being said, if you are someone who spends a lot of time in a web browser, then pinning your favorite website link to the Start Menu can save you some time while accessing them. This is especially true if you are using a touchscreen Windows device with Full Screen Start Menu. Here’s how to attach a sitelink to Windows 10’s Start menu.
Pin a Sitelink using the Edge browser
Pin a website link using the Edge browser is the easiest and fastest way in Windows 10.
To pin a sitelink using the Edge browser, open a browser and launch the web page you want to pin. Once the web page has loaded click on the “Menu” button that appears in the upper right corner.
The above action will open Menu options. Here, click on the option “Pin this page to Start.”
You may receive a confirmation window; Just click the “Yes” button, and you are good to go.
With the above action, you have successfully linked a web page link to the Start Menu. If you don’t like the look of the tile, you can customize the Start Menu bar to your liking.
Of course, if you want to remove the pinned sitelink, just right click on it and select the option “Unpin from Start.”
Site links using other browsers
If you don’t use the Edge browser, you can also do the same using other browsers. However, since there is no built-in option in other browsers, the process of attaching web page links to the Start Menu is slightly different.
To get started, open your favorite website in a browser of your choice. In my case I am using a Chrome browser. Once the website has loaded, click on the “View Site Information” icon and drag and drop it onto your desktop. If the site is HTTPS protected, you will see the lock icon as the default.
If not, you’ll see an icon like “Page”.
The above action creates a shortcut for that website on your desktop.
Press “Win + R”, enter the following command and press the “Enter” button to continue.
This will open the “Programs” folder of the Start Menu. Here, copy the shortcut of the website you just created and close the window.
Open the Start Menu and click on the option “All apps.”
Scroll down until you find the sitelink, right click on it and then select the option “Pin to Start”.
You have successfully linked a website to the Start Menu.
