I have created a web map using web appbuilder. I want to create an icon on my tablet's display screen and associate the URL link to this icon. I would like the user to just click on the icon to launch the web map. How do I do this? Thanks for any help.

Good morning,

Each phone/tablet browser has it's own "Add to Home Screen" button/process: How to Add Websites to the Home Screen on Any Smartphone or Tablet 

And here's how to specify the icon that will be used: android - How to define the website screen shortcut icon? - Stack Overflow

   You would need to create a shortcut from a bookmark that you have set to the WAB apps website. Here is a link that shows how to add the shortcut on a Samsung Tablet:
