Install Website as an App New Edge Browser

 A quick and easy tip for anyone that doesn't know already. If there are websites or online services you use a lot, for example Google Drive or Google photos, then installing them as an app can speed things up a bit. This is super simple, anyone can do it and will mean that you end up with an icon for the website/service that you can click on and it will open directly, meaning you save a little time messing around with opening browsers and bookmarks.

Open the new Microsoft Edge, navigate to the website you want to setup as an app and then click the menu button in the top right corner and then scroll down to APPS and you should see a link to INSTALL THIS SITE AS AN APP. Click this and the website should open in a window that doesn't look like a web browser anymore and should look more like an application window. There should also be an application entry in your Start Menu list which you can then pin to taskbar.

Possibly best described as an RPG / bullet-hell mashup, the game revolves around running around killing monsters, finding wands, swords, armor, gold and materials to craft other items. Once you are powerful enough then you can fight bosses to move onto other areas or access other upgrades and then repeat the process until you have found all the pieces of the 'arch' referenced in the game's title (I am still in the process of completing it as I write this so cannot divulge anything further). It may all sound 'very run of the
