Yes, sort of. Everything except after dragging to desktop I copied it "here". (The desktop.) The option "copy in IE folder" was not there. I used a non-windows explorer file manager to create the shortcut as above I even did the the steps in windows explorer which when I right clicked on IE.exe and selected create shortcut (in IE folder) a window popped up informing me that Windows couldn't create a shortcut here, would I like to place it on the desktop? I said yes. still loaded pages slow.
Here's the path in properties: C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe
I was re-reading my posts and in the one where I tried placing a shortcut in various places, and I said a shortcut created in IE folder worked great....well, that seems to be wrong. Clicking on that shortcut will load pages slowly also. Apparently, I got a wire crossed after trying so many different shortcuts. Sorry. Hope I'm not muddying the waters here.
