    I use Netscape 6.2 When I have used Netscape 4.7, I could put a shortcut to a website on my desktop by right clicking it and selecting Make Shortcut. ( Could also make a bookmark ) With Netscape 6.2 I cannot make a shortcut. Is there a way to do so?

    myrondel,

    It's a lousy substitute, but you could position the NS browser window so that your desktop is visible, then position the cursor on the symbol next to the address bar (see attachment).

    When the cursor turns into a hand, hold down the left mouse button and drag it to the desktop. A shortcut will be created.

    Ratboy Thanks---very helpful I run both Netscapes and doing this shortcut from Netscape 6.2 provides an icon for my Netscape 4.7 but that will work fine

    I'm glad it helped.

    It will create the shortcut for whatever browser is set as the default.
