I am trying to find out how to place internet shortcuts on my desktop. For example a shortcut to "google.com". Searched not much found.

hi Jeffreytooker

open a window somewhere i.e. /root/ and then right click and choose 'new' then 'script' ... name the script something i.e. puppylinux.

then right click on the script and 'open as text' and add something like this (this opens this topic)
Code:
#!/bin/sh
defaultbrowser http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=83261

and save.

then drag and drop the script onto the desktop, and that's your short cut

you can add an icon by right clicking on it then 'file' nameofyourscript 'set icon
