Re: creating a short-cut

Hi Alan and all,

I just checked and I didn’t find anything for creating a shortcut either, maybe that was written for earlier versions of Edge…

I couldn’t find the Create Shortcut Option under more tools either. Here is a way that will work no matter the browser.


1. While on the website you want the shortcut for, press ALT+D.

2. Copy the URL.

3. navigate to the Desktop.

4. Press CTRL+  to unselect the apps on the desktop.

5. use the Applications key or Shift+F10.

6. Hit W to move to New and open it.

7.  Down arrow to create shortcut and press Enter.

8. Paste your URL with CTRL+V.

9. Tab to the Name edit field and type the name you wish to give your shortcut.

10 Tab to Finish and press Enter.

After you find the website and navigate in edge do the following:

  1. Hit alt f in edge.
  1. Find a more or tools option.
  1. Click create shortcut, and follow the prompts.

While this set of steps will work under Chrome (at least), I cannot find a Create Shortcut option in Edge under More Tools.

By the way, this topic was multi-posted on this group and the JAWS group, and is under heavy-duty discussion there.  That's why I strongly discourage people from multi-posting/cross-posting.  There are folks here who have no idea that the question has already been answered there.
