Windows 7: Accessing Website from Desktop Icon doesn't work.

13 Apr 2016   #1

Windows 7 upgraded from Vista 32bit
Accessing Website from Desktop Icon doesn't work.

Greetings. RE: Windows 7 Pro O/S.
Recently, I opted out of "Windows 10 and returned to Windows 7 Pro. I use Google Chrome as my browser. There is a group of websites that I want to keep Icons of on my desktop for easy access and I will want to add more along the way. Google Chrome provides the process of creating a shortcut and it works to the point of installing or pinning an Icon to the desktop. The problem is that when I click on to a website Icon, it may work the first time but when I try it again, another time, it goes to the Google Chrome browser. Most of the time now, when I click on a Icon of a website, rather than going to the website, it goes to the Google Chrome browser.
