Your smartphone or tablet’s home screen isn’t just for apps. Whatever platform you’re using, you can pin your favourite websites to your home screen for quick access – just like an app. This means avoiding opening your web browser and typing in a domain name every time.
Some platforms offer bonus features. For example, Chrome for Android opens these websites in their own windows with no browser interface, while Windows 8 and Windows Phone offer live tile updates on some websites. Follow the steps below to Pin Progressclaim.com to your Home Screen.
Launch Chrome or Firefox for Android and open my.progressclaim.com/login – this is the Login link you want to pin to your home screen.
Tap the menu button in the top right hand corner.
Scroll down and select “Add to Home screen”.
Enter a name for the shortcut, such as: My Progressclaim.
Chrome will then automatically add it to your home screen as a quick link.
Your new Progressclaim.com Icon will appear on your home screen like any other app shortcut or widget, so you can drag it around and put it wherever you like. When you tap the icon, it will load the website in your browser.

Launch the Safari browser on Apple’s iOS and open my.progressclaim.com/login – this is the Login Link you want to pin to your home screen.
Tap the Share button on the browser’s toolbar — that’s the rectangle with an arrow pointing upward. It’s on the bar at the top of the screen on an iPad, and on the bar at the bottom of the screen on an iPhone or iPod Touch.
Tap the Add to Home Screen icon in the Share menu.
You’ll be prompted to name the shortcut before tapping the Add button, such as: My Progressclaim.
Apple’s iOS will then automatically add it to your home screen as a quick link.
The shortcut can be dragged around and placed anywhere, including in app folders — just like a normal app icon. (To create app folders on iOS, touch-and-drag an app’s icon onto another app’s icon and hold it there for a moment). When you tap the icon, it will load the website in a normal tab inside the Safari browser app.

If your smartphone or tablet has another operating system besides Android or iOS, its native web browser would have this feature too. Just open the browser and look in its menu for an option named something like “Add to home screen” or “Pin to home screen.”
To remove a website shortcut from your device’s home screen, just press and hold the shortcut and remove it like you would any other app icon.
