how do i bookmark my desktop shortcut for word 2007

Posted

i have WORD 2007 installed on my computer (windows XP) and a shortcut to open it on the desktop. but how can i bookmark the shortcut so that i can reach the WORD 2007 starting page without having to go back to the desktop each time and clicking on the shortcut from there? i am using firefox 19. when i was using IE, i had a link to WORD that i got as an add-on, but i can't seem to find one in the various firefox add-ons unless i go thru 100 pages of choices!

This is not a built in feature, but there are a few add-ons. This one says it allows you to create a toolbar button (I haven't tried it myself): External Application Buttons 2.
