How would I make a shortcut on my desktop to a web page? I know [or
think I know] how to make shortcuts applications and the likes, but I
cannot find any information about shortcuts for web pages?

Thank you,

It's the same way as you create application shortcuts. Right-click New
Shortcut, type-in the web address.

Barry (& Ramesh):
Another way - perhaps even simpler - is to click on the IE icon to the left
of the URL in the Address box and drag it to your Desktop.

Yes, if you're at that webpage. In that case, right-click the page and
choose "Create shortcut"
