    Yes, in FF and Chrome you can do that, but OP is using Edge :)

    I use Internet Explorer but still cannot find an answer to my quest. There must be a way of getting a shortcut icon for my desktop or, has Google put a block on that sort of thing in their quest to market Google Chrome?

    Are you ignoring my posts? It's all there. Just do as described and you have your shortcut.

    This is not a web browser, so we will ignore this completely.

    In Edge browser you can NOT do the Drag and Drop to Desktop.

    information   Information

    DO THIS:

    1. Right click with your mouse on your desktop
    2. In the menu that pop up, navigate to New with your mouse cursor
    3. Now you see a second menu, navigate to Shortcut and click it
    4. In the new dialog box TYPE:
      Code:
      https://www.google.co.uk
    5. Press Enter on your keyboard
    6. In the next dialog box TYPE:
      Code:
      Google
    7. Press ENTER on your keyboard
    8. Now you have Google on your desktop
    9. DONE


    Each time you double click with your left mouse button on that Google icon on your desktop your web browser will open the Google-page


    I can not make this more clear than this. Hope you figure it out.
    Job done and thank you very much for all your help. I apologies if I have caused you so much bother, not inbtended but it has never been explained in the current manner before. Cheers.
