It is a Toshiba/Chrome laptap and I nothing about Chrome. I don't even think it has windows on it. It has Google installed on it. My problem is that this was bought for my Mother-in-law and she is quite old and everything needs to be right in front of her in order for her to catch on. I can set all of her games up and have them as tabs, but she can't figure it out. If I could put the games as icons on the desktop she may be able to figure it out. I am use to Windows but nothing seems to be the same with this laptop.

I'm sorry, unlike windows laptop, chromebook laptop is limited.
Can she open the app icon to use any app / game?
And here is how to put website link shortcut icon on Desktop screen:

If needed, also try the following if it let you:
1 In a new tab, open chrome://apps
2 Right-click the app you want to create a shortcut for.
3 Select Create shortcut.
4 Choose where you want to see shortcuts on your computer.
5 Click Create.
Please let me know. Thank you.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
