  1. Go the webpage for which you wish to create a shortcut (for example, www.google.com)
  2. On the left side of the webpage address, you will see the Site Identity Button (see this image: Site Identity Button).
  3. Click on this button and drag it to your desktop.
  4. The shortcut will be created.

Hey, Dynamite ! Thanks so much for that ... what a 'dynamite' solution. It's so easy. I don't know how you people know all of these things ! But one last thing if you can help me - I've just switched over to Mozilla/Firefox from I.E., and now I cannot open my Hotmail from Mozilla/Firefox. I log in, it goes to my 'Inbox' page, but when I click on an Email letter to open it, nothing happens. I can't even go into 'Drafts' or 'Delete' or anything. MitziB.
