How to pin to start with Chrome in Windows 8?

stephenb

I am unable to use “pin to start” in Chrome to pin a website to my start screen in Windows 8. This was something I was able to do until recently, and now the option isn’t available. Any ideas what could have happened and how to fix it?

"Add a secondary tile to the Start Screen

You can pin a secondary tile to the Start Screen that takes you to a site directly.

Go to the site you’d like to use.
Click the Chrome menu Chrome menu.
Select Bookmarks > Pin this page to Start Screen.

To move the tile, click and hold the tile, then drag it to a new position.

To unpin, right click the tile and select Unpin from start."

Sorry, but that feature was removed for some reason. Someone figured out a work-around though.
