    How do you set it up so Explorer opens to a certain address? I'm not
    talking about my Home address. I want to be able to create several icons on
    my desktop that will open immediately to the website I want.

    Thanks

    Go to the website and send a shortcut to your desktop. File> Send >Shortcut
    to desktop. You could also add them to your Favorites for easy access.

    You also can add an Address Bar to a Desktop TaskBar; it will
    retain its own history.

    All of the above methods work but... adding icons to your desktop
    produces "tada" a clutted desktop.

    One idea is to create a folder and put shortcuts in it. Such as a
    games, programz etc folder and only having what you would normally use
    three to four times a session on the desktop ie: my computer, network
    neighborhood, Internet explorer, notepad and so on.

    Another idea is to read a basic html tutorial and make a webpage,
    stick it on the desktop and create all the links you require. If you
    were reaaallly lazy,
    you could look in news:alt.alt.test for something.

    That will give you a cluttered desktop, open several instances of IE is
    just as cluttered as it does not have tabbed windows.
    However, Batch/CMD file, put a shortcut to it in the startup group, add
    a line for each site, this opens 3 copies of IE.

    start <fullpath optional>iexplore.exe http://site1/
    start <fullpath optional>iexplore.exe http://site2/
    start <fullpath optional>iexplore.exe http://site3/


    OTOH install Opera, open all the sites you want , save that as a session
    and use the Open <selected session> at startup.

    Don't like Opera, try Mozilla it has tabbed windows and bookmark this
    group of tabs. Don't know what is it like I have not used that feature
    yet.
