Creating desktop shortcut

  • Am new to Opera and can't figure out how to find the "create shortcut" command - in Explorer, I just right-click on "File" and follow the link. Help please!

  • Shortcut for....?

  • On the left-side of the address field there will be a badge/icon. Usually it'll be a padlock. Unmaximize Opera's Windows. Then, left-click and hold on the icon and drag and drop it to your desktop. That'll create a shortcut on your desktop for the page.

    Note that if you want to manually create one, open up notepad, type this in it:

    [InternetShortcut]
    URL=https://siteyouwant.com/
    

    and save it as "nameyouwant.url" (with the quotes) to your desktop.

    Is that what you're referring to?
