    Creating A Desktop Shortcut To A Opened Page ?


    Hello,

    Embarrassed to ask something so simple, but will
    blame it on old age. Using W10.

    Let's say I open up some page from a web site.

    Fine, it appears.

    But, how can i create a shortcut to leave on my Desktop, such that in the future simply clicking
    on it will find and re-open it up again ?

    I remember, i think, that one could drag the small icon or symbol next to the web address onto the
    desktop, but i can't seem to do this; won't allow me.

    There must be a very simple way of doing this, isn't there ?

    Thanks for help,
    Bob

    But do be aware there is no requirement that any certain Web page remain available, always subject to editing by the author or moving to a different Server, etc., in which case the URL shortcut can become invalid, same with saving of Bookmarks/Favorites. Having experienced it in the past, I save a Web page to my computer to assure its availability for future need.
