Windows 7: What is the quickest way to save links to web pages

What is the quickest way to save links to web pages

When I want to save a link to a web page, I open a 'word document' and use the 'copy' and 'paste' or Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V method to save it. I save hundreds of links this way. Is there a better way, a more efficient and faster method of doing this?

Thank you

Drag the web address icon to the folder.

If I may expand on Sir George's (SG) reply; Do you have the "Word" document open, but minimized in your Task Bar?

If you do, do as SG suggests, "Drag the web address icon to the" minimized icon for the word document.

You may see a black circle with a bar across it, but wait for a second or two and allow the document to open, and then drop it into place where you want it in the document.

Thank you for this. If I use a clipboard manager like 'save me', would I be able to do it even faster, without having to open any folder every time I want to copy a hyperlink? Please see this link.

Don't have a clue about that particular software, so I can't give any meaningful reply.

Yes, this method is quite convenient. Thank you. Have you any idea about using a clip board or a clipboard manager to make it even quicker?

Or....you could use the bookmarks (Favorites in Internet Explorer) built into the browser?

For example, In chrome I just click the star in the address bar and it saves the link in my bookmarks.

Hello logicearth,

Thank you. I do that for short term web pages. This is for hyperlinks that I want to save to the computer.
