Do you have a favorite Website that you go into every day, maybe
even more often than that? This might be Healthy People 2010,
your county or state health department, your hotmail account or
some other Website.
If you want a REALLY quick way of opening up that site, do the
following. Open up Netscape and find the site. Now click on the
little bookmark icon that sits between the words "Bookmarks" and
"Netsite" on your bookmarks toolbar.
Ordinarily you would click on the bookmark icon and drag the site
URL left into the Bookmark folder but in this case you click,
hold your left mouse button down and drag it to your desktop.
Voila, a hyperlinked shortcut on your desktop to that site that
you can open by double-clicking. Very fast and easy to do.
Don't get carried away or pretty soon you won't have any space
left on your desktop.
This hint is aimed at those of you using Windows 95, 98, 2000 and
Netscape 4.7+; my apologies to Mac users. Perhaps you could try
this method out and tell us if the same process works on a Mac.
Just a reminder. It's important to upgrade your Browser to at
least the next to the most recent so that you can keep up with
browing technologies and plug-ins. Current browsers will often
help make you faster at getting content and will make it easier
to use the new technologies that are coming out all the time.
