How do I add Chrome app launcher to taskbar after restoring Windows?

One of the most common questions that IT administrators receive from users is how to add the Chrome App Launcher to their taskbar after restoring Windows. In this article, we will go over the steps needed to add the Chrome App Launcher to the taskbar after restoring Windows.

The Chrome App Launcher is a very useful tool for those who use Google Chrome as their main browser. It allows users to quickly access their favorite web applications and services without having to launch Chrome each time. The App Launcher also provides quick access to important settings and preferences in Chrome, such as the ability to add or remove web apps, manage browser extensions and themes, and even switch to a different Google account.

Adding the Chrome App Launcher to the taskbar after restoring Windows is a relatively simple process. Before we get started, you should make sure that you have the latest version of Google Chrome installed on your computer.

To begin, open the Chrome browser, click the menu button (three dots at the top right corner), and select “Settings.” In the Settings window, select “Appearance” from the left sidebar and check the box next to “Show home button.” This will enable the App Launcher icon on the taskbar.

Next, open the Windows Start menu and search for “Chrome App Launcher.” When the search results appear, right-click the Chrome App Launcher icon and select “Pin to taskbar.” This will add the App Launcher icon to the taskbar.

Finally, you can customize the App Launcher icon by right-clicking it and selecting “Properties.” In the Properties window, you can change the icon’s appearance, its name, and even add a shortcut key.

Once you have completed these steps, the Chrome App Launcher should now appear in the taskbar after restoring Windows. This is a great way for users to quickly access their favorite web apps and services, as well as important settings and preferences in Chrome.
