I am a bookmark hoarder with the best intentions. Each time I see something very interesting on the Internet, I feel it must be saved, and I know that I’ll go back to it later.
The reality is that I spend close to 10 hours or more on the computer each day, and most of that time is spent searching, researching, or surfing randomly. If I were to try to view all of my bookmarks, it would probably take me 20 hours per day, and they’d likely keep piling on as I look through everything.
There are many ways of organizing bookmarks and completing projects that will help you focus on specific groups of bookmarks. I am not explaining any of this. Instead, I’m going to show you how you can store super-important bookmarks on your desktop or in any other folder on your computer.
It’s the simplest thing you will learn today. Simply:
- Open the page to save. It does not matter which browser you use.
- Ensure you can see the address and the location you want your shortcut.
- Highlight the address of the website where you want to save a link.
- Click and drag the address to your desktop
The weirdest thing is making sure you can see your desktop or another folder. I have two monitors, so it is very easy for me to do. If you have only one monitor, make sure your web browser is not maximized – that is, make sure the browser is only filling a portion of your screen.
