Thank you , Shawn. So far, this is the best feedback I've received (or found) so far. But I'm not sure it's exactly what I need. I'm sick at the moment so I haven't been able to experiment with the tutorial. Here's what I'm looking for - maybe this explanation will be better than the last:
If I right click on the Desktop, in the drop-down menu, there is a selection called "New." If I click on "New" I get a choice of either a "Folder" or "Shortcut" (and a lot of other things). I want to create an Internet shortcut on the Desktop with the same favicon that comes up if I create a Bookmark or Favorite. (I use both IE and Firefox.) Usually, all I get is the IE or Firefox Icon - not the Favicon. I create a lot of Internet shortcuts and categorize them in folders - so the Favicon is important to me because it makes it easier to pick out the correct shortcut when I want it. Since this works with a Favorite or Bookmark, I would think that it would work with what I'm trying to do. Can you help?
