How To Pin A Login Page To Toolbar

How To Articles

As a frequent user of various websites and online platforms, I often find it inconvenient to repeatedly navigate to the login page every time I want to access my account. Thankfully, modern web browsers provide a handy solution – the ability to pin login pages to the toolbar. In this article, I will guide you through the process of pinning a login page to the toolbar, making it easily accessible whenever you need it.

Before we begin, let me assure you that this feature is available in most popular web browsers, including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Microsoft Edge. However, the steps may vary slightly depending on the browser you are using. I will provide instructions for Google Chrome in this article, but the general concept applies to other browsers as well.

Pinning a Login Page to the Toolbar in Google Chrome

1. Open Google Chrome and navigate to the login page of the website or online platform you want to pin to the toolbar.

2. Once you are on the login page, click on the three-dot menu icon at the top-right corner of the browser window. This will open a drop-down menu.

3. From the drop-down menu, hover your cursor over the “More tools” option, and then select “Create shortcut” from the expanded menu.

4. A pop-up window will appear, allowing you to customize the name of the shortcut. You can choose any name you like, but it’s best to keep it descriptive so that you can easily identify it later.

5. By default, the “Open as window” option will be checked. This will open the login page in a separate window, giving it a more app-like feel. If you prefer to open the login page in a new tab instead, uncheck this option.

6. Once you have entered a name and selected your preferred option, click on the “Create” button.

7. Congratulations! You have successfully pinned the login page to your Google Chrome toolbar. You should now see a new icon representing the login page in your toolbar.

Now, whenever you want to access the login page, simply click on the icon in your toolbar, and it will open in a separate window or tab, depending on the option you chose during the shortcut creation process.

Pinning Login Pages in Other Browsers

If you are using a browser other than Google Chrome, the process of pinning login pages to the toolbar may be slightly different. However, the general concept remains the same. Here are some general steps you can follow:

  1. Navigate to the login page of the website or online platform you want to pin to the toolbar.
  2. Look for a menu or settings icon in your browser (often represented by three dots or three horizontal lines).
  3. Explore the menu or settings options and look for a “Create shortcut” or similar option.
  4. Follow the prompts to create a shortcut and customize its name, if applicable.
  5. Once created, the login page should appear as an icon in your browser’s toolbar.

Remember, these steps are just a general guideline, and the actual process may vary depending on your browser. I encourage you to explore your browser’s settings or search for specific instructions for your browser if you are using one other than Google Chrome.
