How to open a VB app in shell/main-start of another app



We have developed a couple of VB apps which are published now. We are trying to implement a master app from which other vb apps can be launched. To do so we have added link of LIVE URL of other apps in main-start of master app. On button click in the action chain I am calling Open URL which has LIVE URL of clicked app as its value. I am using Open URL in my action chain and setting Window Name = _self so that it opens in same tab. But problem is i loose context of master app's shell page. Idea is to open other apps in same tab and user should be able to see header/footer details of master app's shell page because Shell page has home button which allows user to navigate to home-flow which has links to other vb apps. How to open other apps in same tab without loosing context of shell page of master app.
