How to Save a Web Page as a Shortcut


Almost everyone knows that you can bookmark a website (or make it a favorite), so you can easily locate the site again from your browser. However, you may be unaware that you can add a desktop shortcut that will automatically launch your default browser and navigate to the website in one action.

  • Open your browser and navigate to the web page you want to save as a shortcut.

  • Click the URL in the address field. The URL will be highlighted. If it is not, hold the "Ctrl" key and press "A" to highlight the URL.

  • Hold the "Ctrl" key and press "C" to copy the URL.

  • Right-click in an empty area of the Windows desktop, point to "New" and click "Shortcut."

  • Hold the "Ctrl" key and press "V" to paste the shortcut in the Create Shortcut window. Click "Next."

  • Type a name for the shortcut and click "Finish" to save a shortcut to the web page.
