Game Shortcut Manager is a FREE and Open Source Windows application to allow you to place URL links on your Start Menu and Task Bar, as Windows 10 currently does not allow you to pin them to these locations.

Game Shortcut Manager can also create and manage shortcuts. Shortcut types include standard URLs, and especially Game/App URLs such as those in Steam, Epic, UPlay, and Twitch. Currently you can look up games from Steam, with searching other stores to come later.

Basically, you can add a link to any standard URL, Game or App to the Start Menu and Taskbar, while still using the correct platform to launch the game.

Special thanks to TechnoSys for working out how to properly pin items to Start / Taskbar
