If you are using W10, it may be different.
You may need to go to send to, and find desktop, create shortcut.

Hi, Glenn,

 

I proceeded to try the same way you are suggesting, but did not see the shortcut option in the context menu.  The closest thing I saw is the Save Page As option, when on the page itself.

The way I do it is to copy the link in a browser, by doing alt + D and copy.

Then I make a copy of the chrome shortcut via the applications key, it will have the same name but with (2) with it.

Then I do alt + enter on that new shortcut, and in the path field, I press the end key and a space and paste

So this puts the path to chrome a space and the URL.

Then I exit and on the shortcut, I press F2 and rename it.

It was much more to explain it than it really takes to do all this.

Maybe there is a shorter way, but this is the steps Google used to offer a few years back.

Would you please give the steps you used in Chrome to create a web page desktop icon?

 

Sincerely, Vicky V

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.

 

Judy
