What with all the CAP work being done, you might find yourself with the need to save a webpage to share with others. The easiest way to do this is to create a shortcut, then copy it to a shared folder (like the G: drive). Would you like to be able to do this without any typing whatsoever? Here’s how:
1. In your browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, whatever), click on the “restore down” button next to the red X you use to close the browser. This will resize the browser window. Make sure you have no other windows open and can see your desktop behind the browser window.
2. Notice the icon to the left of the address (http://www.whatever.com)? Left click on that icon, but don’t let go of the left mouse button. The pointer should change to have a small box or arrow behind it when you do this. Drag your mouse pointer across the browser window until you get to the desktop, then release the mouse button.
3. You’ve now created an internet shortcut which has been automatically named the same way as the title of the webpage you were viewing. You can cut and paste this shortcut to the appropriate folder just like any other file. Visual learners may find the attached image useful.
Hope this helps!
