Shortcut to Web Page on your Desktop

Want to get to an often visited Web page without having to start your browser and type in the Web address? It is easy. Just right-click on any blank area of the computer desktop. Choose New, then choose Shortcut. Type the URL of the website you want. For instance if you want a shortcut to the Compu-KISS web site you would type in:  www.compukiss.com. Click Next. Type in the name of the website. Click Finish. You will now see a shortcut to that website on your desktop.

As always in the complex computer world, there is also another way to do this. You may find it easier to mark the website as a Favorite in Internet Explorer or a Bookmark in Firefox. Then click on Favorites in IE 6, Bookmark in Firefox or click on the Star icon in IE 7. Once you have your list of favorites or bookmarks open, you can simply drag the name of the web page to your desktop. This method requires that you see the web browser and part of the desktop at the same time, so you may have to adjust the size of the browser window to show part of the desktop. You can do that by clicking on the middle icon in the upper right hand corner of the web browser (the icon to the left of the X). If you still don't see the desktop, position your mouse on the side or bottom edge of the browser window. The cursor will turn into a double arrow. When you see that arrow, press the left mouse button and hold it down while you drag the window to make it smaller and see the desktop beneath it.
