Windows 7: Start menu shortcut to a web page

Start menu shortcut to a web page

EDIT!
Sorry about the dyslectic "Start" not "satrt"

Trying to pin a shortcut on Start menu to open my forum thread in "sevenforums.com"

I have a shortcut (S1) in a folder with the target as "http://www.sevenforums.com/installation-setup/blah.html#postxxxxxxx"

Then on Start (Menu) I created a shortcut (S2) to (S1)

When I click on the start-menu-shortcut (S2) nothing happens.
But when S1 is clicked my thread page is opened.

Am I expecting too much.?

In the mean time I have deleted "S2" and created a fresh shortcut on Start (menu) directly to my thread.

Hello Russell,

There's no need to create a shortcut to a shortcut. A direct shortcut with the source target works best.

If you like, you could create a shortcut using the method in OPTION ONE or THREE below that you can directly "Pin to Start Menu".

Hi Brink.
The Internet Website Shortcut - Create drag and drop works a treat with PaleMoon + FireFox
Thank you for your lightning quick response
