I cannot find an option for sending a web link directly to my Wallpaper as a 'shortcut'.


I cannot find any option (in the 'File' tab), to send a website link to my wallpaper directly. On IE in the drop down 'File' menu tab, it has an option to 'Send' as an email, OR 'Send' to your desktop as a Shortcut.. Mozilla does not have that option. I do not understand why you do not have that simple option? The Drop down 'File' in Mozilla only allows you to send the link as an email. I always have to copy and paste a link from Mozilla to my IE browser to be able to send a link as a Shortcut to my wall paper.

More Information

In Firefox, when I go to the drop down upper tab option of 'File', there is no option to "Send as a Shortcut to Desktop". (When you want a Web link to be a shortcut to your desktop.) You can only send the link as an email. In Internet Explorer, under the 'File' tab you have the additional option of "Sending to Desktop" as a shortcut.
