by Apps, I mean like the menu and programs you have on your gadget. I was able to make a bookmart shortcut icon on the home screens but I also want to have it on the Applications. Help?

As you have not told anyone which model of tablet you have, it will be hard for us to give you a specific answer to this question. And which browser you are using would also be helpful.

I for one Use Dolhphin HD browser, they have 10 web page shortcuts on that browsers home screen available to use.
However I'm not going to write you a long answer on how to do this, when I don't know anything about your device.

Book mark shortcuts on your homescreen are quiet simple to do and some Tabs also have a mini apps panal for shortcuts, but again not all.

Why don't you edit your profile signature to include you model number then you won't have to state it every time you ask a question in here.

Happy to help you more if you come back to us with some more details please :good:

Unfortunately there are not many 7.7 users in here atm, so experts are in short supply.

The screen shot you show is of your APPLICATIONS menu. The icons in there are your App icons, web page book marks cannot be added to that list.
(as far as I know for your model).

If you want web page short cuts/book marks, just add them to one of your home screens. Your user manual should tell you how to do this for your model.
( I think you might have done this already)
Or use Dolphin Browser and have the 10 Speed dail buttons for your 10 favourite web sites.

You can probably also create a folder on one of your homescreens and keep all you web page book marks in there but I couldn't advise you how to do that.
Wizz or Scottyf79 are the men for you there.

Is this what you are asking, you arn't really making yourself very clear.

It's a Galaxy Tab 7.7 wifi & 3g (GT-P6800). Thanks for your help. I guess I can't make an shortcut of my bookmark in the Applications menu :( Thanks, again anyways! :)
