How to Add Links to Home Screen on Brave Browser

We can customize the shortcut links like add, remove, and edit the address — the Home screen shortcut help in visiting frequently visited site just with a click.

Create Shortcut Link on Brave browser

Do you have a favorite website that you often visit? It could be a blog or a shopping website. Everyone has a website that they visit pretty regularly.

It gets tiresome to search for it or type in its URL if you visit the website frequently. Hence, web browsers have a feature that allows users to add a page to the home screen or bookmark. Brave browser has this feature too.

Users can add their favorite web pages to the home screen of the Brave browser. Adding the website to the home screen as shortcuts help users save time. Instead of searching for the website or entering the URL, they can now visit their preferred website with just a single click.

Brave browser has a unique interface that makes it difficult for users to get used to it immediately. I realized that adding web pages to the home screen is one task.

The most frequently visited websites on the Brave browser are known as Top Sites. A hassle-free way of visiting websites important to the user is handy.

These top sites are displayed on the home screen once the browser is launched. Typically, the browser displays six Top Sites at a time. Users can also allow the browser to display their favorite websites of the user.

Add a Shortcut on Homescreen

Adding pages as “Top Sites” on the Brave browser requires the user to tinker with the home screen. You may use the drop-down option to add a new top site to the panel directly.

Here are the steps to add the site link on the browser start page:

  1. Launch the Brave browser on your computer.
    It will display the Top Sites in a row on the home screen.
  2. Click on the More horizontal 3dots icon menu next to the last top site.

  1. The link onto Brave’s home page is nice but it LACKs the ability to add several links and folders to one box like Opera does. This would allow me to categorize associated links into one box. It would also be nice to fill the browser window with these boxes instead of restricting the number that can be seen all at once in one assigned place.
    This is important to me and I miss having this ability.
