Re: Web site shortcuts on desktop.

Good morning;

perhaps you can give the steps you take to create a web desktop shortcut. I just created one in chrome, and had no problem using the shortcut to get to the web page.

Hello, All,


I’ve recently updated to Jaws 19, although my issue may not have anything to do with that.


I also had problems with Google Chrome crashing, so I restored the settings, as had been suggested in a help forum.


Now, however, any of the shortcuts on my desktop to sites just take me to the main Google Chrome page.


I have tried deleting and creating new shortcuts, but no changes.  I also tried checking the checkbox on the shortcut creation dialogue that says to open in a window, still no changes.


I’ve tried the various On Startup checkboxes, still no changes.


Does anyone have ideas for me?  As it is now, I have to type in the total url and can no longer use shortcuts.
