Creating AutoCAD WS App for your desktop

AutoCAD WS is a web app designed to take your work with you home and on your iOS device (Android coming soon). The one thing I don't like about it is the fact that it feel less like the AutoCAD we all know and love. I have found a way to help with that.

Internet Browser
I am a big fan of Google Chrome web browser. One of the things I like about it is the ability to make a web application shortcut from any website. Today we are going to show you how to make a web application shortcut of the AutoCAD WS website.

1. Download Google Chrome.

2. Go the AutoCAD WS website

3. Select the custom button located on the to right of the web browser

4. Select tools and then Create application shortcuts...

5. The Create application shortcuts pop up box will appear asking where you want to place your new application (Desktop, Start menu, and/or Pin to Taskbar)

6. Enjoy!!!
