Ceating a desktop shortcut for a URL gives an error upon click
After I drag to the desktop a shortcut appears. In properties it lists the correct URL. When I click to open the error "Unable to open this internet shortcut. The protocol "http" does not have a registered program. This happens with IE as well as Firefiox. FF is my goto browser. Win 7, FF 18. Any ideas?
