    Note that in Edge Chromium version 87 and higher you’ll be able to pin a website to the Start screen in Windows 10. Starting with the new canary build 87.0.661.0, this option has been available.

The pinned taskbar shortcut, when clicked, will launch the command-line that looks like below:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\Edge\Application\86.0.622.43\msedge.exe" --launch-tile --profile-directory=Default --app-id=mgdchfjjlpabbhlmihibnckjnkdlaled --app-url=https://www.winhelponline.com /tileid App:MSEdge.mgdchfjjlpkjnkdlaled.UserData.Default
