create a shortcut on the desktop link when right click in Firefox

When I use Internet Explorer and that I right click when I am on a Web site, there is an option to create a shortcut to this site on my desktop.

When I use Firefox and I click right when I'm on a Web site, there is no option.

I want to know how to insert this option in Firefox to do a right click for me.

Here is the Mozilla help page:

http://support.Mozilla.com/en-us/KB/creating%20A%20desktop%20shortcut%20To%20A%20Web%20page

Drag the icon of the site (which is the symbol of address bar on the left) on desktop, and then rename the shortcut to your Web site.

DeskCut module works, BUT it needs to be changed in the Option section after installation:
DeskCut options
A. name tab of the
1. name of the Options file: generating the file name of the page title
B. Path tab
1 sets the path... Browse... Choose where to place the shortcut (usually on the desktop)
[In Win7, it's C:\User\username\desktop ""]
C. OK!

Now, it should work!

What a pain that Mozilla should have added a right-click feature "Create a shortcut" in Firefox!

  • Record of creating file batch but the need to create a shortcut on the desktop and remove shortcut a day of age

    Basically, I want like this
    (1) I want to create the shortcut from the folder on the desktop of the file created in the folder Tempbackup
    (2) this file beats on execution will also remove old one day from the desktop shortcut
    so when I see this file to run. n IT run create the file in the specified folder, but no shortcut or create a shortcut without a path. When I click on the shortcut, it ask me how to open this file. so it's not a good shortcut or not a correct path.

    Hello

    Try these steps-
    Create the shortcut proposed (to cmd.exe/c start)
    Now, open properties such as proposed
    Add the full path in the 'Target' field with your own relative path and the app, for example
    %windir%\system32\CMD.exe /c start your_relpath\app.exe [your_args]

    That's all. However, doing so does not change the current working of the called program directory. If this is desired, then enter the following alternative:
    %windir%\system32\CMD.exe /c "cd your_relpath & start app.exe [your_args].

    The & is described as a command separator (see cmd /?). Note: Put something like '% CD%\your_relpath\' in the field ' start in ' doesn't do anything.

    You can try this as well-
    Create .bat file close record/yarn that you want to have the relative path
    Edit the file, and the file type: (as you want to open c:\bin\app.exe, and then place file beats in c:\run.bat)
    Departure bin\app.exe
    Save the run.bat file and double-click it to open it.

  • How to create a shortcut on the desktop to msn

    I'm doing new Vista loaded as user friendly than our previous XP.  Need help to create a shortcut on the desktop to msn, so everything we need to do is click the butterfly icon to connect.  Also need to know how to download the msn toolbar.  Thank you!

    Hello

    MSN toolbar
    http://www.Microsoft.com/toolbar/

    Loading of the toolbar can make the icon.

    If you wish to make your homepage of MSN, and then when IE is started it will take you to MSN.

    You can also make MSN Favorites page in IE - then go to your Favorites - right-click on the favorite MSN
    then go to the desktop - Right Click and PASTE the SHORTCUT.

    I hope this helps.

  • How to create a shortcut on the desktop?

    desktop shortcut

    where can I get the shortcut on the desktop

    I might have misunderstood your question entirely.

    A longer sentence with a development could avoid this.

    With nothing good to go on, my answer would be... you must create it.

    Example: create a shortcut on the desktop of Windows Media Player...

    Start button > all programs > scroll down the list to find Windows Media Player > right click it > click send to > select desktop (create shortcut).

    A Windows Media Player shortcut is now on your desktop.

  • Cannot create a shortcut on the desktop for a Web site in the browser Firefox Tor

    I am a user of Tor Browser, and I love the interface of Firefox. According to my page, my Firefox browser is up-to-date. But for some reason I can't save shortcuts to office for a Web site. Whenever I drag the icon beside a Web site (variously a glob, a green bolt and other icons), I get a mouse icon of denial no matter where I try to put the web shortcut on the desktop. This happens even when I drag the bookmarks of my bookmark bar! My guess is that something is blocked in Tor allowing no shortcuts settings. Any suggestions on where the parameters of the shortcuts are in Firefox?

    Fred, all other modules worked well. I contacted the people of Tor, and they were unsure of what's going on. I've pasted their response below, but the short answer is that they have me just save shortcuts manually from the office whenever the Tor Button is active. Thanks for your help, you've been great!

    Drag events filtering and blocking the external application

    External applications can be induced to load files that perform network
    activity. Unfortunately, there are cases where these applications can be launched
    automatically with little or no user intervention. To avoid this,
    Torbutton installs a component to provide the user with a popup when
    the browser is trying to launch a helper application.

    In addition, modern desktop computers now preemptively look for all URLS in drag
    and events move as soon as the drag is initiated. This download happens
    independently Tor browser setting and can be triggered by
    something as simple as holding the mouse button for a little too
    time by clicking a link to the image. Filter us drag and drop events
    events of Torbutton before the OS downloads the URL contained events.

  • Unable to create a shortcut on the desktop

    I am trying to create a shortcut on my desktop to a favorite Web site.  I right click, select new, then shortcut, and nothing happens. This has been a problem for some time, I'm just finally getting around this announcement!  Help, please. (I read on a websit to run a registry cleaner. I tried & nothing has changed)

    Windows 7 Home Premium

    Never, ever use a registry cleaner! At best, they do nothing. At worst, your machine might get screwed up if bad that you would end up having to reload Windows.
     
     
    Save the site in my favorites. Take the favorite and drag it to the desktop. Shortcut created.
  • How to create a shortcut on the desktop to a Notepad document?

    I have something written down in Notepad and you want to create a link to that on the desktop

    Not sure if I understand the problem. But here's a response to just about anything if you do a RIGHT CLICK you get a MENU list and there you should find "create shortcut". Make a LEFT CLICK and you should see it appear in the folder your in. Then if you RIGHT click ON the shortcut you can 'COPY' or 'CUT' and then do a RIGHT CLICK and 'PASTE' anywhere.

    Good luck
