Create Website Shortcut to Desktop in Edge Browser

When using the Edge browser on a Windows 10 machine, there is no easy way to create a desktop shortcut to a specific website.  It can be done, but takes a few extra steps.

Drag-and-Drop does not work.  You have to manually create the shortcut.  Here’s how:

  1. Select and Copy the website’s entire URL from the address bar:

2. Right click on the desktop.   Choose New > Shortcut:

3. Paste the URL in the “Create Shortcut” dialog:

4. Re-name the shortcut to whatever you want to call it:

5. Now you will see the shortcut on your desktop:

How to Pin A Website to Your Taskbar

Pinning websites to your taskbar is as easy as following these quick steps

dell xps 15 2 1 in review front display

Although easy overall, getting a website from your browser to your taskbar is a little different depending on which browser you’re using.

Microsoft Edge:

Microsoft’s Edge browser has one of the simplest methods for pinning a website to the taskbar. Just follow these quick steps:

Step 1: Open your desired website in the Edge browser.

Step 2: Click the three-dot menu icon in the top right-hand corner.

Step 3: Scroll down the menu until you find Pin this page to taskbar. Click it.

If you would rather pin to the Start menu, click that respective menu item instead.

Google Chrome:

Adding a website to your taskbar with Google Chrome requires a couple of extra menus than some of the other browsers, but that doesn’t mean it’s difficult. Here’s how to get started:

Step 1: Open the website you want to pin to your taskbar in Google Chrome.

Step 2: Click the three-dotted menu in the top right-hand corner.

Step 3: Click More Tools, followed by Create a shortcut.

Step 4: When the popup window appears, you can customize the name of the shortcut, and then choose Create. The shortcut should not automatically appear on your desktop.

Note for Macs: Chrome acts a little different on MacOS. Instead of using the Create a shortcut tool, you will need to instead choose Save page as…. Then, in the window that appears, make sure you are saving the link to your Desktop. This should add the shortcut to your desktop, no problem.

Firefox:

Unfortunately, Firefox doesn’t have an integrated way to pin shortcuts to the taskbar like Chrome does. However, there is a workaround.

Step 1: Create a new Firefox shortcut. To do so, search for Firefox in the Windows search box. Right-click the relevant result and click Open file location. Click and drag the Firefox shortcut to your desktop, or copy and paste it there.

Step 2: Right-click on the new shortcut and select Properties.

Step 3: In the Target field, add “-url” followed by the website you want the pinned link to navigate to. For example: “C:Program FilesMozilla Firefoxfirefox.exe -url https://www.digitaltrends.com”

Step 4: Click OK. Then right-click the shortcut and select Pin to taskbar.

How to Add an Appliance AD to your AD Report

There are several different ways to ADD an Appliance AD to your AD Report.

The two places you can do this from are:

      1. Below the Heading Area  *(recommended)
      2. From the Left Panel.  

Location 1:  When using the Add Appliance ADs links from below the Heading area, there are 3 methods to choose:

    •   Select Appliance ADs
    •   Suggested Appliance ADs  *(best option, saves time!)
    •   Manually Add Appliance Info (information only, will not list ADs)

Appliances2

Choosing the Suggested Appliances link gives you the quickest way to add the appliances that are mentioned in the ADs.  

Please keep in mind that Suggested Appliances are not necessarily a complete list of applicable appliance ADs, but are merely limited to any that are clearly mentioned within an AD.  Thus the name “Suggested”.

      1. Click the check box beside the AD you’d like to Add
      2. Hit the Add Appliance ADs button
      3. Hit the Return to Report button

Appliances5

The newly added Appliance ADs will be listed at the bottom of the heading area, and are also listed at the bottom of the Report, which can be seen by either clicking on the No. of Appliance ADs link, or by scrolling down:

Appliances6


Location 2: When using the Left Panel method, simply click Add ADs / Service Documents > Add Appliance ADs.

Appliances3

This method takes a bit more work, but if you’re looking for something very specific, just type the keyword (such as magneto) into the Filter Search, then select the check box beside it and click the Add button.

Appliances4

The newly added Appliance ADs will be listed at the bottom of the heading area, and are also listed at the bottom of the Report, which can be seen by either clicking on the Number of Appliance ADs link, or by scrolling down:
