Does anyone know how to get these ? I can't seem to find out...

eg - on my desktop shortcuts I have facebook - but the icon is google chrome, and not the " f " logo

and Barclays Bank, same google chrome and not the proper logo ?

Highlight the link in blue at the top


right click mouse and copy


go to desktop right click mouse and hover curzor over "NEW"


another box opens click on 'shortcut'


right click the mouse and paste the link into the line inside the box




that should put the link inside on the line


press the 'NEXT' button


now change the title to what you want


press 'FINISH' button


and you should have it


you can change the design of the icon with a right click

Oh db - I'm giving you a BIG rep for all your efforts.........

thank you so much

did what you showed and the site did appear on desktop - but not with the site logo which is what I want !

As it is at the moment, on my desktop I have about 10 shortcuts - but they all have chrome logo !

never mind - these things are sent to try us !

thanks again Very Happy

if you right click mouse on the desktop, and go into properties you can change the icon for some others but probably wont have facebook logo
