How do I launch Google Task manager in a separate window standalone with no tabs and no menus in Windows


1 Answer 1


This can be done using a standard windows short cut. Create a desktop shortcut to Chrome then change the “target” for this string

"C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --user-data-dir=c:\tmp\scratch\sessionTasks --new-window "%1" --window-position=10,10 --window-size=500,900 --app=”https://tasks.google.com/embed/?origin=https://calendar.google.com”

Note: I created a separate directory for the “user-data-dir”, if you don’t and there is an existing running chrome session it will launch as a tab in that session
