Microsoft pushed a new update to the Microsoft Edge Canary and with it, came a new feature, which lets you pin websites to the taskbar. If you’re a Microsoft Edge user then you are already familiar with the feature as it’s there in the EdgeHTML-based Edge. However, you can no longer Pin sites to desktop. The latest version of the Microsoft Edge Canary is 188.8.131.52, and you can download it right now.
To pin websites in the taskbar, all you have to do is click on the three dots view located beside the address bar of the browser. Now, move your cursor to the More tools, click on the Pin to taskbar option. Once you’re done, you’ll be given an option to edit the name of the website, if you’re interested in changing the name you can do that, or else leave as it is and hit Pin.
After going the process, you’ll notice all your pinned websites in the App list too. They will appear exactly like all the other apps in the App list, and right-clicking on the pinned websites will offer the exact same control as the other apps. You’ll be able to Pin them to Start, Open file location, Remove from this list, and of course, uninstall if you want.
As I said earlier, the new version 184.108.40.206 is available only for Edge users in the Canary channel, meaning that if you running Microsoft Edge Dev, you’re out of luck. You can download Microsoft Edge Canary from here.
