desktop link
« on: Thursday 30 July 20 13:50 BST (UK) »
 I went to open  my BT email which I rarely use and on the page it said the   link was outdated.
I opened the new link  but now I can`t put a shortcut to it on my desktop.
I just want  to be able to go directly to it  without the hassle of going  through my BT account.
I was using IE before   but now on Firefox.

Thanks

Select the contents of the address box at the top - starting https:....

Press Control and C to copy that text to the clipboard.

Go to your desktop (Windowsbutton and D is a quick way there)

Right-click on an empty part.

Select New, then Shortcut.

Use Control and V to paste the clipboard contents into the box given, then click OK

You should then have a shortcut on your desktop which opens your usual browser at the right page. If you already have a browser open, it should add a fresh tab to it.


Looking at ALSTON in south Ribble area, ALSTEAD and DONBAVAND/DUNBABIN etc. everywhere, HOWCROFT and MARSH in Bolton and Westhoughton, PICKERING in the Whitehaven area.
