Pinning applications to your Launchpad widget

To pin and organize applications in the Pinned Items section at the top of your Launchpad widget, follow these instructions:

  1. Click the chevron (^) icon at the top right‑hand side of the widget to expand the contents, and then click the pin icon. To remove a pinned application from the Pinned Items section, click the pin icon next to the application that you want to remove.

    NOTE: In the top right‑hand corner of each widget and section is a gear icon that enables you to display your list of applications in Thumbnail View or List View. You can experiment with these options to determine which view you prefer.
  2. You can move pinned icons into the order that you prefer in the following two ways:
    • List View: Click the move () icon (next to the pin icon) of the application that you want to move, and then click the Place Here button that appears in the position where you want to place your application.
    • Thumbnail View: Click and hold the application icon that you want to move until the icon begins to shake, click the move () icon (next to the pin icon), and then click the Place Here button that appears in the position where you want to place your application.

To add links to your Links widget, click the Add Link button in the bottom left‑hand corner of the widget. On the Add Link screen, type or paste a descriptive name in the Name field, type or paste the link in the URL field, and then click Save.
