Updated: 04/12/2021 by Computer Hope
Users can create Windows desktop shortcuts to their favorite web pages on the Internet like YouTube, Google, eBay, and others, by following the steps below.
- Open the web page.
- Resize your browser window so it's not maximized.
- In window mode, click-and-drag the icon to the left of the address in the address bar to your desktop. Once over the desktop, release the mouse button to automatically create a shortcut.
If you want to add a website bookmark instead of a specific page, make sure to go to the website home page before doing the above steps.
