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:

chrome 69 user issues google update

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.


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”

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

Print Your Subscription Billing History

We all need Receipts for different reasons:

      • Proof of Access to a Regulatory Library for FSDO
      • Give your Accounting Department Proof of Purchase
      • Tax Exemption purposes or for your own records

Whatever the reason, you can now VIEWSAVE and/or PRINT your Receipts for your Subscription to the AD Toolbox Online.  Here’s how:

  1.  At the top right area of the Member Dashboard, click on “Billing History“:

2.  List:  Here you will see your Receipts organized by Date.  You can re-organize the list by clicking on the column headers, or narrow your search by typing  keywords in the Filter Search field.  Click the PRINT button to view your Receipt.


3.  From here, you should also be able to VIEW, SAVE and PRINT your receipt.  *Each browser has different ways of displaying the print and save options, so be sure to click directly on the Receipt, or hover, to bring up those options:



*Firefox is notorious for directly downloading PDFs, so you won’t see anything on your screen when you click to View your receipt.  Be sure to check your Firefox Download folder.
