    Hello guys. Today, I'm making a very simple tutorial and hope you learn something! This is just a simple tutorial on how to pin GBATemp to your taskbar in Windows. GBATemp will run like a standalone application too, not just act as a shortcut (Looking at you Microsoft Edge...)!

    1. Go to https://gbatemp.net

    2. Click the button in the top right corner that looks like 3 dots laid out vertically.

    3. Hover over the drop down labeled "More Tools..." (Above settings)

    4. Click "Add to Desktop"

    5 (Optional). Rename "GBATemp - Independent Gaming Community" to "GBATemp" or anything else you would like.

    6. Make sure "Open as Window" is selected!

    7. From your desktop, drag the shortcut to your taskbar.

    8. You're done! Now you have GBATemp on your taskbar that runs like a standalone application!

    This works very similarly on Chrome for Android too. It puts a GBAtemp icon on your homescreen and GBAtemp runs as a Chrome web app in full screen :)

    Does this work on FireFox? That'd be nice.
    Also, somebody should make a 3DS app that lets you browse the temp.

    It might. I don't have Firefox to test with
    That would be cool!

    The mobile interface is good as is, we don't need an app.
    What we do need is support for browser notifications.

    It's also possible with Firefox. Just create a shortcut to firefox, open Properties and add
    Code:
    -new-window https://gbatemp.net/
    at the end of the Target line

    Actually the 3ds sdk supports making browser shortcuts, and there's a program out there that can legally do it fairly easily.
