    desktop shortcut for google


    Bottom left says search the web and windows, but it just shows replies from bing. I cant even find how to do a desktop short cut for google. Desktop shortcut used to be so easy. Is W10 going to turn out to be more difficult to used than 8, or is it really easier once you figure things out?

    :)

    Or from all apps, right click Google Chrome and select pin to start or pin to taskbar. Whichever you want.

    You just want a link to Google on your desktop, right?
    Open your browser, go to Google.
    Left click and hold on the Google icon to the left of the URL area, drag and drop it on the Desktop.

    I'm assuming you want a shortcut so your browser opens google.com rather than making a shortcut to Google Chrome. If not I apologise.

    There are many ways to do this. As I don't know what browser you are using this is the surest (if perhaps not the easiest) way..

    1. Right click on your desktop and select New and then Shortcut

    2. In the location box type "h ttps://google.com"" and then click Next.

    3. In the name box type "Google.com" or whatever you want to call it, and then click finish.

    4. You will see the shortcut on your desktop. When you double click on it it will open you default browser and go to google.com.

    It is no harder once you get used to it. Really very similar in my opinion.

    Good luck *Smile

    This is what Im trying to do: I just want a google shortcut on desktop, so when I want google search, I can double click on it (same as W8 ?)
    And how to have IE as my browser, and be able to choose the homepage that I want to see when I open the IE.

    Also, if you are using ie, go to Google.com, click file and send > shortcut to Desktop

    Was reading some comments about msoft 'edge' browser, and I wonder if maybe I'm being hasty wanting to stay with IE. Is it supposed to be a really good browser that msoft designed to work well specifically with new W10 system?

    It may be a good browser some day, but today isn't that day *Smile With the next major update that was supposed to be released November 2nd but has been delayed, there will be some improvements. I'd suggest waiting until then to seriously look at it.

    Just my $.02 worth.
