How to Add Websites to the Shortcuts Bar

You’ve probably noticed in the sidebar of the Home Page links to the expanding Faithlife family of websites. (A)

If they’re not visible:

  • Open the Home Page
  • Click the Customize icon in the upper right of the Home Page (B)
  • Select Faithlife Websites in the lower left of the menu (C)

Perhaps as you use these links you’re thinking, I’d sure like to add links to websites I use for Bible study and lesson prep.

Well, we can’t add those links to the Home Page, but we can add them to the Shortcuts bar!

Here’s how:

  • Navigate to a website in the browser of your choice (D)
  • Decrease the size of the browser (E) and Logos (F) windows so you can see them both at the same time (or place them on separate monitors)

  • Drag the web address from the browser (G) to the Logos Shortcuts bar (H)

  • Notice Logos adds a default icon on the Shortcuts bar (I)
  • Right click on the default icon (J)
  • Select an icon of your choice (K)

  • Click the new icon to open the website in your browser (L)

You can place as many websites as you like on the Shortcuts bar! This is a great way to quickly jump to:

  • Your church’s, school’s, or organization’s website
  • Websites for illustrations
  • News reports
  • Atlanta Braves :)
  • Or whatever you like!

For more information about using the Shortcuts bar, please check out the Logos Training Manuals Volumes 1-3 in print or digital.

And for 24/7 Logos training, check out the new website.

Remember to follow and you’ll automatically receive a FREE digital download of Dr. Grant Osborne’s commentary Ephesians Verse by Verse.

  1. Hi! Do you have desktop or web version of your apps? I got the mobile one. thanks!

  2. Hello,

    I love these small instruction bits of gold for us to learn how to use Logos better. Thank you so much for these on line classes!!!

    I would like to know if we can search, in Logos, how old all of God’s servants were at their deaths? In other words, how many years did they live and have a list of them?

    Have a great rest of the day.
