    Can I have a desktop shortcut to W10 Forum?


    When I right click, there is no option to 'create shortcut' to put on desktop. It says 'copy shortcut', I clicked that, but nothing happens. How come 'create shortcut' for dsktp icon is not always there for different sites?

    If you are using IE, just click the icon next to the address, hold shift, drag onto the Desktop.

    If you're using Firefox, literally just click and hold the icon just to the left of the web address, and drag it to your desktop.

    Makes me laugh that in Windows there's always a million and one ways of doing things :P

    You can also do this (without the shift) in IE, but it makes a pinned link, which are pointless.
