This tutorial will show you how to pin Android phone apps to the Start menu on your Windows 11 PC using the Phone Link app.

You can tap into the power of Phone Link app with Link to Windows integration on select Surface Duo and Samsung devices to instantly access your Android phone’s mobile apps directly from your Windows 10 PC.

With Phone Link apps, you can instantly access the Android apps installed on your mobile device right on your PC. Using a Wi-Fi connection, Apps allows you to browse, play, order, chat, and more – all while using your PC’s larger screen and keyboard. You can add your Android apps as favorites on your PC, pin them to your Start menu and taskbar, and open them in separate windows to use side-by-side with apps on your PC – helping you stay productive.

When you add an Android app to Start, it will get installed to the PC and listed in Start menu > All apps, but will still require your linked Android phone to be turned on to open the app.

You can "Pin to Start" Android apps added to Start from the Phone Link app.
