If there is a web site (or web page) that you use a lot – say Sainsbury’s, or Tesco’s or Ebay, you can add a shortcut for that place on to the desktop; next time you want to go there just double click the shortcut and away you go.
To create the shortcut in Internet Explorer (IE):
Open up IE, and navigate to the site, lets say Ebay. At the top of the page in the ribbon there is a window which shows what page you are on – so once you’ve got to Ebay, it will say http://www.ebay.co.uk. Just to the left of that, there is a tiny little symbol – for Ebay it’s a little multi-coloured shopping bag. Click and drag this on to your desk top – it will create the shortcut for you. (Different sites have different icons – Tesco have a T, Sainsbury an S and so on – the method is the same, click and drag the little icon to the desktop.)
To create the shortcut in Google Chrome:
If you use Google Chrome, at the top of the page on the ribbon on the right hand side you should have a spanner symbol. Click on that, then click on Tools. (If Tools isn’t under the spanner symbol, see if there’s a symbol like a cog wheel, and click on that, then Tools.) Then click on Create Application Shortcuts, and tick the box for desktop. The shortcut is created.
