    On a pre-OSX mac, you could single click the icon for the program you need the shortcut for, and press "Command (Apple key)" and "M" key, at same time. The "M" stood for "Make Alias".
    Click on the "Alias" icon (on top of original icon), and drag to desktop. Not sure how OSX handles this. Maybe the same way? Never tried it with a web page address.................
    Good luck!

    Command (Apple) + L is the OS X command for making an alias (shortcut).
