Cannot create a new icon
« on: April 05, 2024, 01:21:47 AM »
Hi Everybody,

I just recently installed Avast Browser.  I cannot create new icons on the home page.

I have attached a pic of the area in question.

It isn't called the Avast Secure Browser (ASB) for nothing, so there are going to be restrictions in what you can do.

Whilst this may be possible on the Chrome browser there may be restrictions in the ASB.

Note: I don't particularly like Chrome, so I have never installed the Chromium based Avast Secure Browser, so I can't speak from personal experience.

Avast Secure Browser is useful for online banking; that is it's primary purpose I believe.

No issues creating a new shortcut.  See attached below:
