  1. While holding the mouse button down, drag the icon to the desktop 🙂 It’s as simple as that!

– If your web browser is in full screen mode, simply make it a bit smaller and then try the steps above again

– If you would like to make a shortcut to your favourite website on the address bar in your web browser, just drag the icon there instead of to the desktop 🙂

Cheerio 🙂
