Pinterest Toolbar Button: How To Install and Use It

Get the Pinterest Toolbar Button to Pin Photos Across the Web

UPDATE 11/25/14: There’s a great new toolbar extension from Tailwind. It lets you Pin from any website, as well as schedule pins across the web or repins on Pinterest. I recommend trying the Tailwind Chrome Extension. Download it here: http://blog.tailwindapp.com/how-to-install-the-tailwind-chrome-extension/.

Any great Pinterest account features Pins on its boards that come from many different sources. A Pinterest account that is simply a vehicle to continually “plug” one website (the board owner’s) is missing the point. The Pinterest Toolbar button makes it easier to pin the best content from around the web

As you browse your way across this crazy Internet on a daily basis, you will find lots of great images to Pin. And that is where the Pinterest toolbar button (plug-in, extension) comes in.

The Pinterest toolbar button is a small button that can be easily placed onto the toolbar of any of the most common web browsers, such as Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer. Once installed, it is displayed as a simple “Pin It” notation.

As you find images that interest you, clicking on this button will activate the familiar “Pin it” option for every image on that page that is available to be pinned. If logged in to your Pinterest account, you can pin the image directly to one of your pinboard of choice or create a new board on the fly.

Not logged in? No problem. You will be prompted to log-in before pinning.

You can then also choose if you want to share your find on any other social networks you have connected to the account. Using the Pintrest toolbar plug in is a quick and easy way to add great images to your boards in just a few seconds. For the serious pinner, it’s an indispensible tool.

The process involved in actually installing the Pinterest Toolbar Button is slightly different for every browser. Check the appropriate article from the choices below to find out just how to add to the toolbar of your favorite browser:
