    I have forgotton how to create a shortcut on the desktop in Firefox
    that will take me to the weather channel and some other pages.

    I have them on my 98SE desktop but I want to put them on a XPHE
    laptop.

    When we reach an old age we just can't remember simple stuff. Please
    remind me how to create the shortcut.

    Thanks

    Shrink FF enough so you can see the address bar and the desktop. Now
    on that address bar, thats where you see the http and the www, right
    next to that is a little icon. Click and drag that to the desktop and
    let go, and poof, shortcut.
