How would I create a desktop shortcut for one of my bookmarks?


What I would like to do is access one of my bookmarks straight from my desktop. I think I need to create a shortcut in order to do this. Does anyone have any ideas?

Additional System Details


  • User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; WOW64; rv:24.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/24.0

Sorry misunderstood Here's solution You can use Firefox to create a shortcut on your computer's desktop to a page you've visited:Resize the Firefox window so you can see both your computer's desktop and the Firefox window on the same screen.Click the icon on the left of the Location bar, i.e. where the web address (URL) is shown.While still holding the mouse button down, move the pointer to the desktop, then release the mouse button. The shortcut will be created.You can also drag and drop items to the desktop from the Bookmarks menu and the Library window to create shortcuts.If you open the shortcut you made, your default browser will open, and display the page for which you made the shortcut. If you want to make Firefox your default browser, see How to make web links open in Firefox by default.In addition, there may be third-party Firefox extensions that can help you. For more information on searching for and installing extensions, see Find and install add-ons to add features to Firefox.Share this article: http://mzl.la/O8wQKO

Oh wow that's an awful lot of stuff to do to get a shortcut on the desktop. In I.E. you just go to 'tools' and click 'create shortcut' and VIOLA! There it is. I always have trouble with drag & drop stuff.
