How to add buttons in Sitecore Experience Platform

In one of my project requirement, I have to add buttons in Sitecore Experience Platform screen.

Here are quick steps 

  •  Login to Sitecore Desktop mode.
  • Select CORE Database
  • Open Content Editor
  • Add a new group “My LaunchPad Group” under item “/sitecore/client/Applications/Launchpad/PageSettings/Buttons” which is inherited from “/sitecore/client/Applications/Launchpad/PageSettings/Templates/LaunchPad-Group
  • Add required number of button items under "/sitecore/client/Applications/Launchpad/PageSettings/Buttons/My LaunchPad Group" which is inherited from "/sitecore/client/Applications/Launchpad/PageSettings/Templates/LaunchPad-Button"
·         There are 4 fields in each LanuchPad-Button item
o    Text – Text which is display under icon
o    Icon – Image for LuanchPad-Button
o    Link – Redirect link on the button and text
o    OpenNewTab – If checked, open the link in new browser tab

I added 3 buttons – external link, internal link and image as
Launchpad Items
Launchpad Items

Note :-
When you specify external link, put link value with “http://” like
While for internal link, provide link value as item path like “/sitecore/content/Home”

That’s it.

So after adding these 3 buttons, my Sitecore Experience Platform looks as
