    How To Enable PWAs App Icon Shortcut Menu in Microsoft Edge Chromium



    The two Chromium-based browsers, Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge have received a new feature. When enabled, it allows progressive web apps (PWAs) to have a shortcut menu entry for their tasks. Right-clicking on such a PWA pinned to the taskbar would open a menu with actions defined by the app.

    The feature allows you to access a number of features of web apps directly when they right-click on a pinned PWA. It also works on recent Android versions. There, you have to tap and hold on the app icon on the Home screen. Its custom actions will appear in the app menu. Currently, the ability to access the shortcut menu is hidden behind a flag.
