How To Make Chrome "Open As Window" Shortcuts (Now That Google Killed Them)



 Chrome open the window header image

Chrome has the useful ability to open a web page that opens in a new tab. Or, rather, it did not update this functionality on Windows and macOS.

We can not tell you why Google decided that it's just ChromeOS devices you're upset at its loss, you're not alone. Impromptu web apps easy to open and manage.

But there's a way to get them back, at least for the moment. Here's how.

Step One: Use Applicationize.me

Applicationize.me turns any standard website into a downloadable CRX file, which can then be "installed" in Chrome as if it were a Chrome extension. It's not-the "app" just wants to be the website you choose, in its own thin window with a link. But it's a useful little hack of nonetheless.

 Applicationize, me website.

Note that normally, we advise users to be wary of unnecessary browser extensions and applications. itself is not dangerous, of course).

To get this done, open the site you want to use as at "Open as window" link, then open Applicationize.me in a new tab. "WEB APP URL."

 Applicationize.me CRX download

Click the web button that says "GENERATE & DOWNLOAD CHROME EXTENSION." A CRX

 CRX extension file downloaded.

Step Two: Install the CRX File

Now open another tab in Chrome, and go to the address chrome: // extensions .

 Chrome's Extensions interface.

If you have not already enabled it, enable the "Developer mode" switch in the top right corner .

 Activate Chrome's Developer Mode.

Drag and drop the CRX file from your desktop onto the Extensions tab. Click "Add App" in the confirmation window.

 Drag and drop the CRX file to the Extensions page.

Step Three: Create the Shortcut

Now open another new tab, this time going to Chrome: // apps .

 Chrome's Apps page. The new extension is at the bottom.

Right-click the new icon, then click "Create shortcuts." In Windows, it wants to ask what you want them on the desktop, Start Menu, or both. For our example, we'll use the desktop, but it does not matter which you choose. On macOS, it wants to download the "Chrome apps" folder, which should open automatically.

 Right-click the icon to create a shortcut.

Now when you double-click the shortcut, it will open the site you chose in its own window, with no address bar or other user interface elements. Any left you click that are not part of the domain wants to automatically load up in a separate Chrome window. So, you do not have access to the context menu when you right-click a link.

 The shortcut opens up the page in A Chrome window with no interface.

You can place your shortcut anywhere on Windows or macOS, and it will act like a normal shortcut file.

Note that, unfortunately, these manually-loaded "apps" do not sync across Chrome installations. So if you're using this trick on multiple computers, you may have to set it up again for each one.
