Like the app menu in Chrome OS devices? You can get the Chromebook like app menu in Windows Mac or Linux machines too!
How To Get Chromebook Like App Menu In Chrome
- Create a desktop shortcut or taskbar shortcut
- Right click and select Properties
- In Target, after chrome.exe, add –show-app-list
- Click Apply
Now, try clicking that desktop shortcut and you should see this!
Now, this is not just the app menu. You have a search option too. You can search your history and bookmarks too!
Open As Tab Window or Fullscreen
What happens when you click app from this menu? It opens up the app in a new tab. What if you want it to open in a new window or fullscreen instead of tab?
Right click any app and you will see those options. Choose from pinned, tabbed, full screen or window mode!
I created a desktop shortcut like this and named it Appmenu and made separate desktop icon for normal Chrome. Thank you François Beaufort for this awesome tip!!!
