    Chrome App Shortcut Window Caracteristics

    I get [I think] that Chrome's Application Shortcuts are the version of "Shortcut to desktop" in IE and Firefox. But the window that is created sucks -- no tabs, wrench...

    Is there a way to set up a desktop shortcut that will open ion a "regular" Chrome browser window?

    Regards,

    Chuck,

    Here's the target to start chrome and load yahoo.com:
    C:\Users\[youruserid]\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.ex e http://www.yahoo.com


    Note the Lounge added a blank here ".ex e" remove it.

    RG, yea, I figured that would be the way. It's strange I think that nobody has done an extension to drop links on the desktop. App shortcuts work kinda, and hand-doing them does the trick, but...

    Thanks,
    Chuck

    RG, I just figured out a way, kinda, to do it:

    Go to https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...bkbammjbdenadd where you will; find "IE Tab" for Chrome. Once installed, you can switch a tab/window to the IE "engine" and the "Create Shortcut" is in the context menu and works!
