#69 Chromebook - Pinning an App to the Shelf

Hi ya!

Ever wish you could just click on the taskbar (called Shelf on Chrome OS) and launch the program that you want to open without having to click on the app that you wish to load?
Well, you can!

Pinning an App to the Shelf
Here’s how you pin an app to the Shelf:
  • Click on the App Launcher in the bottom left corner of the screen (looks like this: Screenshot 2015-05-05 at 1.04.30 PM.png)

Easy, right?
