Did you know that Edge lets you "app-ize" Checkvist?

Fairly new feature in Microsoft Edge: I’ve really been enjoying the fact that any SaaS app (or I guess any website) can be converted into an app that I can keep for call-up in my taskbar in Windows. So I have the little Checkvist icon in my taskbar that instantly calls up Checkvist in an Edge browser that has no tabs or extra UI components – just Checkvist.

You click the little three-dot thing in the upper left, hover over Apps, and then can install Checkvist as a quasi-app from there.



Ooo! Screenshot perhaps?

That’s pretty cool, but I’m not seeing the benefit over simply opening the website in a separate tab or window. Is it just so you can launch it more easily?

I couldn’t wait to try this myself and I installed it as an app on my computer. What orsonk describes is accurate screenshot below.

To address your point MaudMan, a Windows 10 shortcut that could be very useful is the ability to launch an application from the Windows Task bar using the Keyboard Shortcut Windows Start Key + the position number of the app you want to launch.

In the screenshot below it would be Windows Key + 1. I really like this because what better way to launch the best Keyboard Focused Outliner than with an Operating System Keyboard Shortcut!

For anyone who wants clear instructions on how to do this on your Edge Browser - here you go!


Here is how it looks on top of this very page in its own window on Windows Just like Inception (a dream within a dream) :wink:

I have so much guilt about how I could be doing much more to promote Checkvist but I will just turn that into little actions. I was thinking about Checkvist all this morning and am glad I can come here to contribute. I will make a promise to use it more at work and share feedback as I could be using it more than I do and sharing about it more as a result. :smiley: I was checking out the about us page and appreciating Sasha’s smile. It stands a perfect contrast to Kir’s pic making it a perfect balance of Yin and Yang :laughing: but I digress. Love Checkvist and will be promoting it in my own unique and creative ways :heart_eyes:


Thank you, Vidderkidder! Also, I said the three dots were on the left, and they’re actually on the RIGHT.

I feel the main benefit is the convenience of having it launch from my taskbar like any other app. It feels like a big deal to me. For others, it might seem minor.

I think it could seem minor to some folks. To me, it’s very convenient to launch from my taskbar.
