If you are accustomed to visit a website or a blog a lot of times during the day, you might wish to have a shortcut which saves and spares you from the tedious procedure to type its web address in the Internet Explorer’s address bar. Wouldn’t be nice, with only two clicks, to open Internet Explorer and have your beloved site already loaded and in front of you, ready to be read? Here is a nice hack on how to add a website on the Desktop context menu of your Windows Vista (and maybe Windows 7 too). By the way, if you wonder what the Desktop context menu is, just go to your desktop, right-click any empty space, and there! You have just got it!
- Open the Notepad and copy and paste the following code:
- Save the document as Get_it_from_the_Desktop.reg
- Double click on the file you have just created to merge its content in the registry.
- Restart your computer for the changes to take effect.
- Trick: When you have finished , delete both ” (quotes) and retype them. That’s because the quote you copy and paste from this article maight not match with the one your computer uses.
- Also, have a look at comment number 3. If the above hack doesn’t work, it may work the one posted by Liu!
