How to Create Website Shortcut to My Desktop

Question of the day:

How to Create a Webpage Shortcut On Your Desktop (Windows)?

That’s the question I was asked today by 5 different people.  It makes sense for those who visit a particular website very often, sometimes it is easier to create a shortcut on your desktop rather than always looking for it. This method should work fine for Windows XP, Vista, and 7. Enough talking, here is how you can create a shortcut on your desktop for your favorite website:

  1. Place you cursor on an empty part of your desktop.
  2. Right click and select: New  > Shortcut
  3. A shortcut wizard will open up.

Right Click On Desktop

Enter Shortcut Destination


Enter the destination to the shortcut you want to create. In that case you will simply enter the website or webpage URL. Click Next
