Very confusing, please help
I've tried click & drag, the Playstore,,,
Launch “Chrome” app.
Open the website or web page you want to pin to your home screen.
Tap the menu icon (3 dots in upper right-hand corner) and tap Add to homescreen.
You'll be able to enter a name for the shortcut and then Chrome will add it to your home screen.
Use a browser....
He's using a browser. He's asking how to put a shortcut on his desktop. Geez.
Not very clear from the question.
Well there is also the option of using the TDPRI mobile app rather than the browser, where I'm not sure if users ever call their home screen a desktop, or if they only call their browser a desktop.
I view my browsers as being ON my desktop.
Is that incorrect?
And after using the mobile app I got tired of the fact that it ram even when I closed it, using my data to inform me of TDPRI activity all day even when I chose to NOT be on the TDPRI.
So I deleted the app and now only log on to TDPRI in my browser.
Does the app even work? I mean does it exist any longer? Its been a long time since I've made an attempt to use it.
The old original TDPRI mobile app stopped working not too long after enthused digital bought the TDPRI.
Then Tapatalk created a new TDPRI mobile app, but that app is also the mobile app for several other music forums and maybe even non music forums. Works well but does that thing where it assumes that if you use the forum enough to install the app, you must want to be notified of activity even when you chose to close the app in your device.
Any mobile device web browser can fully utilize TDPRI without installing any app.
My ipad and iphone keep me logged in so I just log on in Safari and get my notifications.
Or keep it open in a few tabs when I'm participating in threads.
Apps are for saps
Most all contain data sniffers. Heck, even most Websites now try to get you to reveal your location.
Nope. Sniff this:
In Android, the Home Screen is analogous to the Windows desktop. Unless I'm wrong, that's what the OP is asking about.
I just use the browser and made a shortcut. I cannot stand the tapatalk app.
Right, and can the home screen display all the apps the user has in their device?
I forget now but even in windows, you can open your browser, or perform other tasks like word processing, without opening the browser?
Not sure, just asking.
That app drove me crazy with constantly trying to take me to other sites etc etc.
Yup, exactly. and it didn't behave at all like the old TDPRI app.
Yes, in Android the Home Screen can display all the apps on the device. They can even be organized into folders and those folders placed on the "desktop," just like in Windows.
I don't understand your second question. In Windows, you open a browser (i.e. Edge, Chrome, Opera, etc.) to view the World Wide Web. Other tasks are performed in other stand-alone programs (e.g. Microsoft Word, Adobe Photoshop, Cakewalk, etc.) that may or may not have had shortcuts placed on the desktop. There is no need to open a browser to use Word, for example.
Does that help?
That was not apparent to me...I'm sorry that my reply was disappointing...it happens.
