    If I am on the internet in Edge is there a way to hide the address bar? It would make the need to use websites instead of apps a little easier if I could just hide the address bar. Also while I'm thinking about it, is there way way to assign a picture to a website that I pin to my home screen??

    Sorry if these are topics that have been talked about already, I looked but didn't see them anywhere.

    Hiding the address bar -- No

    Pictures for pinned tiles -- With 8.1 there would be a picture, but so far under 10, I haven't seen this implemented yet

    The pictures 8.1 assigned were just snapshots of the site and while that was better than just an "e", I would love to give the pinned website a logo so it looks more like an actual app.

    Regarding tiles for websites...

    I use a nice little app from the store called "Pin it!" to create tiles for websites and pin them to my start screen. I have tried other apps with similar functionality but I like this one the best. The sample shot here shows the lower half of my start screen, when scrolled down fully. The MSN, Google, USA Today, Wikipedia, Ars, TitanTV, AccuWeather and YouTube tiles were all made with the Pin it! app. I also appreciate that the app gives the user the option of using a name on the lower left of the tile instead of mandating it.
