How to Pin Websites to the Chromebook Shelf

This quick overview will explain how to pin a website to the ‘shelf’ (dock) on your Chromebook.

  1. Open up your browser (Chrome) and go to the site you want to add to your Chromebooks shelf. Click the “3 dot” icon in the upper-right corner (see screenshot below) and then select More tools and finally Create shortcut…
  2. Give the shortcut a name in the space provided and then click the Create button. Note: if you want the site to open in its own window (which has a slightly different interface) place a check in the box labelled Open as window
  3. That’s it! The site will be pinned to your shelf and can now be launched from there.
  4. You can repeat the above steps to pin as many sites to your shelf as you’d like.

  1. I love this feature of Chromebooks, but whenever I close the website after I have pinned its shortcut to my shelf, the shortcut disappears and is no longer available. How can I stop the shortcut disappearing from the shelf?
