    Is there a *easy* way to create a Desktop Shortcut in Edge?


    Hi folks -

    Try as I might, I cannot find an extension enabling me to create a quick webpage desktop shortcut in Edge.
    You would think that Microsoft would have thought of a simple solution to accomplish this.

    Any ideas?

    TIA *Rolleyes

    :)

    Create desktop shortcuts to websites with Edge

    If I'm shopping away in IE and create a shortcut to that webpage on the desktop from IE, if I haven't cleared my cache, it remembers the stuff in my cart for the IE shortcut (for as long as the cookie is good, not just a shopping cart but other similar pages).
    I can't do this in Edge unless I create a Favorite for it IN Edge. Then there is no nice quick link from my desktop, I have to open Edge and select the Favorite. Used this many times with IE desktop links when Black Friday shopping.

    Point is it's annoying because Microsoft wants Edge to be the default browser but then the Microsoft employee on here responds with the suggestion to send it to IE to create a Desktop shortcut. I'm using Edge on my Android phone and I can send a shortcut
    for a webpage to the Android Launcher - but I can't do the same with Edge on my Windows 10 computer?

    It is a very basic task that should not require multiple steps of opening another application to create a desktop shortcut is the point I think of the OP.

    Desktop Shortcut Icons

    I tried using Edge that comes with the computer and I can see the logo you are talking about. When I try to drag it to the desktop you can see that I have it but as soon as I drop it the window opens rather than putting the shortcut icon on the desktop.
