Sorok, Have You Tried??
First, open the page in your browser. Next, save it as a Favorite/Bookmark. Once that's done, then open the Favorites/Bookmarks menu, left click on the favorite of choice and "drag" it to your desktop, then release the mouse button. (A RIGHT click drag will do the same thing, but you'll need to select "Create shortcuts here" from the menu when you release the right mouse button.) A shortcut to this site should be placed there.
Recognize that the desktop shortcut will only work when you're connected to the internet.
Hope this helps.
it's easier than that
If you are using IE (and this may work with other browsers as well, I just don't use other browsers)
when you get to a website,
Just resize your browser so that it is NOT full screen,
move the browser window so that you can see a blank spot on your desktop,
notice that in the browser Address bar, there is a small icon to the immediate left of the "http:..."
Just click and drag that tiny icon to your desktop.

I have tried your way and it worked, but
why they (shortcuts) will not stay on desktop permanentely like they did in win98se even if I'm offline. Also, if I do a right click and select ''create shortcuts here'', the shortcuts disappear into the Temp\Temp.Internet File. Now, please tell me how to make them go to Desktop instead and stay there. Please simple english please
Sorok, Just For Grins, Please Try...
First, when you drag the links to the desktop they should stay there...just like in Windows 98. I'm not completely clear why they aren't staying there. Let's make sure that Internet Explorer knows it's the default browser.
Open the Control Panel, double click on the "Internet Options" icon, then click on the 'Programs' tab. When that opens, in the bottom part of the screen, place a CHECK mark in the box next to "Internet Explorer should check to see if it's the default browser". (If it's already CHECKED, then UNCHECK it) Now restart the computer. If you've UNCHECKED the box, then go back and place a CHECK mark in the box and restart the computer again. This should cause Internet Explorer to recognize itself as the default browser.
Now try saving the links to the desktop in the same manner as before. Hopefully they stay where they're supposed to be.
Hope this helps.
Thanks, it worked, and again
it created other problems: it changed my home (Comcast)- page- the mail box is missing and such. Also this particular page has also changed- the fonts and the color of the page has changed and whole layout of the page is different than it was before. What's going on? I rebooted computer, but it didn't work.
(NT)Fixed this. Thanks a lot
