Default Creating link to web site on Desktop

How can I create a link to a web site on my Desktop? I have many links that I have saved in Word Documents, which I use for opening a web page with Ctrl+mouse click method.

What I need is to know, how to create a similar link on my Desktop, which I can double click to open the most used web sites like Gizmo.

Thank you,

If you are using Firefox this is how it's done... https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb...ortcut-website

The method that Joe posted also works for IE. Some browsers are different ... for example with Maxthon you need to select/highlight the URL in the address bar and drag that onto your desktop.

Alternatively you can;

- Right-click your desktop and select "New - Shortcut".
- Copy the URL you want and paste it into the "location" box for your shortcut.
- Click "Next", give your shortcut a name and then click "Finish".
- et voila. The link you pasted will then open in whatever your default browser is.
