How did I do it??

I am running Chrome on my main desktop and while I was playing around with the themes etc in Outlook I got Outlook set as the tab that always opens first (automatically) when I hit Chrome on my taskbar and frankly I quite like the set up because naturally I head straight for emails anyway.
But I cannot remember how I did it and trying last night on my travel laptop I could not find what I did so anyone got any ideas on what I did??

NB I have Googled many times and subjects on this but no results.

Maybe you did it this way?

Internet Website Shortcut - Create

OPTION THREE
To Manually Create a Internet Website Shortcut to Open in Any Web Browser

Shortcut can be pinned to taskbar.

Personally I like a right click context menu shortcut.

Add SevenForums shortcut to context menu

You could use the sane method to create an Outlook shortcut for Chrome.

Note: I don't actually use Chrome.

Also Iron has a settings page that allows the user to open a tab or set of tabs. I assume that Chrome is the same.

Thanks mate I tried those links but nothing worked whether it was meant for IE I don't know but I did another quick Google and came up with the answer for doing this in Chrome it just meant go into Settings and then type in the site URL you want where you see set page see pic

But I do appreciate your help.
