How to enable Application Shortcuts on Chrome for Mac, as of June 2018
How to get "Application Shortcut" functionality on Chrome for Mac, as of January 2020:
1. Visit the web page you would like to turn into an application
2. Navigate to Settings > More Tools > Create Shortcut...
3. Give the app a name, make sure "Open as window" is enabled, and click Create
4. The folder Chrome Apps should open in finder. Drag the new app shortcut to the dock or another location for easy access
That's it! You can even quit the app (Cmd-Q) without closing other Chrome windows, as it acts like a separate Mac app.

''Creation of app shims for hosted apps on Mac'' doesn't appear on the list. I'm on Mac El Capitan and Chrome Version 79.0.3945.79

It's still showing for me on El Capitan & Chrome 78.0.3904.108, so this could be a recent change. Can you try to just search "shims" and see if anything shows up? If not, try without and see if it works?

Still doesn't appear with just writing ''shims'' but it actually worked! Thanks!

Hi Greg,
none of the commands in the flags are showing up for me; and I cannot also find "more tools"

There shouldn't be flags to set anymore. Can you share your version number and a screenshot of the Chrome menu?
