Accessing Website as an App using Edge

Recently a user reached out asking if it is possible to pin specific Dynamics 365 Finance – Customer Service page to task bar so that instead of going to the browser every time and then clicking on the specific URL, that specific form is readily available with a single click.

 I recalled I’ve done something similar in Chrome browser to add twitter but in case of D365, the option wasn’t available. However the new Edge browser from Microsoft, which comes pre-installed in Windows 10 gives us an option to install as app option for pretty much any website. Follow along below quick steps to accomplish this.

1. Go to the website you want to access as an app. Click three dots on the top left of the browser > Apps > Install This Site as an App

2. Give it a name and click Install

3. You should at this point see a new app window pop-up with your desired website. You can at this point pin it to taskbar by right clicking on the icon in the taskbar.

Are you a macOS user? No worries!

Same steps apply there as well and all you’ll need is Edge browser installed. Once installed, go to right click > Options > Keep in Dock to add this app to your dock.
