    How to have Internet shortcuts on desktop?

    Well, the question is how can I have Internet shortcuts on the desktop?
    Is there an easy or a hard way, I don't care!
    I'd just like to have it on desktop or a start menu,
    just click it and 'boom' I'm on youtube, or Wp (Wirtualna Polska - Virtual Poland).
    I appreacite the help

    Depending on, what browser you are using, there are multiple ways, like:

    Microsoft Edge Shortcut - Create in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    Create a desktop shortcut to a website | Firefox Help

    Save as Shortcut - Chrome Web Store

    You can pin an open webpage to the taskbar, then right click the browser's icon to open it:

    It's like you have link to Windows 10 Forums on the desktop, you double click it and it opens the site.
