While you are viewing our web pages, you can quickly save a shortcut to that Web page on your desktop or in a folder. This article describes how to do that.

1. Firefox

You can use Firefox to create a shortcut on your computer's desktop to a page you've visited:

  • 1. Resize the Firefox window so you can see both your computer's desktop and the Firefox window on the same screen.
  • 2. Click on the site icon next to the Location bar, i.e. where the web address (URL) is shown.
  • 3. While still holding the mouse button down, move the pointer to the desktop, then release the mouse button. The shortcut will be created. 



You can also drag and drop items to the desktop from the Bookmarks menu and the Bookmarks and History sidebar to create shortcuts. If you open the shortcut you made, your default browser will open, and display the page for which you made the shortcut.

2. Internet Explorer

To create a shortcut to the current Web page, drag the System (the "e" on a blank document) icon from the left side of the Internet Explorer title bar to your desktop or a folder. When you double-click the Internet shortcut, Internet Explorer starts and loads the Web page the shortcut points to.

3. Opera

  • Navigate to the page for which you want to create a desktop shortcut.
  • Click "Bookmarks" in the top menu bar and select "Bookmark Page."
  • Give the bookmark a name and click "OK."
  • Click the "Bookmarks" menu, select "Manage Bookmarks," and then hold the cursor over the bookmark you just created.
  • Click the bookmark, hold your click, drag the bookmark over your desktop, and then release your click.

4. Chrome

  • Navigate to the page for which you want to create a desktop shortcut.
  • Click the icon resembling a star, located directly to the left of the address bar.
  • Give the bookmark a name and click "Done."
  • Click the "Tools" menu, select "Bookmark Manager," and then hold the cursor over the bookmark you just created.
  • Click the bookmark, hold your click, drag the bookmark over your desktop, and then release your click.
