I need help creating/saving a Google map using desktop PC

Hello all,

I do not know if this is an appropriate place to ask this, but with all the tech savvy people here maybe i can find the answer i am looking for.

I want to create a google map, customize the route and save it for later use.

I am going to a new city to a concert and want to make a specific driving route using my desktop computer, NOT the one my smartphone would take to get me home, thus the reason for wanting to make a custom driving route map that i can save and pull up later when leaving the venue and will know i am taking the quickest way home.

In Google maps on your computer, you could modify the route from the default one to one that you want.
Then, you could:
