    I used to be able to drag a url to my desktop from ie or firefox and change the shortcut just as I would for other desktop shortcuts. Now when I try, if it is an ie shortcut, it does not change, and if it is a firefox shortcut and I attempt to change it, it goes to the default ie shortcut icon. I did create a url desktop shortcut a few weeks ago before this problem started happening and that icon has remained changed. Please help. My children need different icons in order to go directly to some of the educational pages they use. Thanks.
