Firefox Tip – Create a Desktop Shortcut for Your Favorite Site

Did you know that you can use Firefox to create a shortcut on your computer’s desktop to a Web page you’ve visited? We’re here to tell you that you can! Creating a desktop shortcut let’s you open that page directly from your desktop – clicking the shortcut will allow your default browser (hopefully, that’s Firefox!) to open the site immediately.

It’s as simple as a drag and drop. Make sure you resize your browser window so you can also see your desktop behind it. Click on the icon in the Awesome Bar next to the site’s url and hold it, until you’ve moved the pointer to your desktop area and then let go, or “drop” it.
