Jere from Mississippi asks:

I just switched to Windows 7 from XP. I want to create an icon on my desktop and just go straight to a website like I could before. I am worn out with all the new things. Help!

Hi Jere,

Creating a desktop icon to a website is simple, and this method works in IE, Chrome, and Firefox. Start by going to the website you’d like to make a shortcut to. Also make sure that the window is small enough that you can see part of your desktop.

There will be a little icon next to the address in your address bar. Each browser shows it differently.

Just click and drag that icon to your desktop and Voila! A shortcut is made.
