How to Turn any Website into a Home Screen Icon

HelpDo you have websites that you go to frequently and you don’t want to go through the steps of typing in the web address?  If so, why not create an icon for that website.  It’s very easy.



  1. Bring up the website you want to turn into an icon
  2. Click the arrow at the bottom to bring up a list of options for the site (see image below).  They include adding as a bookmark, to reading list, to home screen, mailing a link, tweet or print.   Click on  “Add to Home Screen.”
  3. A window comes up asking if you want to rename the icon.  Rename or not.
  4. An icon will appear on your screen. You can leave it where it is, or move it to a more prominent position.
