2. Right-click and select: New > Shortcut
3. A shortcut wizard will open up.

Enter the destination to the shortcut you want to create. If the destination is a website, simply enter the URL of the website or page. Click Next

Shortcut Screen 2

Type a Name for the Shortcut

1. Type in a name for the shortcut that will help you remember what it is for.
2. Once you have entered the new name, click finish.

Shortcut Screen 3

Use The New Shortcut On Your Desktop!
You are already done! That’s all there is to it! Now when you want to bring up the site you visit frequently you can simply double-click on the new shortcut on your desktop!
