Last Updated 2 years ago

These procedures assume you are trying to make an icon on your Windows 7 desktop for getting to Yahoo. You will need to substitute your own website in place of www.yahoo.com

  • Right (note it is NOT a left click this time) click on any blank area on your desktop
  • Left click NEW
  • Left click Short Cut
  • Type http://www.yahoo.com in the box that says “Type the location of the item” ( or something close to that) – watch your slashes are going the right direction and that things are spelled correctly.This example goes to yahoo.You will need to type in the address you want.
  • Left click NEXT
  • Type whatever is a good name for your icon in the box that says “Type a name for this shortcut” (or something close to that)
  • Left click FINISH
