As an IT administrator, it is important to be able to quickly access webpages and documents in a variety of ways. One of the most useful ways to do this is to save a link to a webpage or document as a shortcut in the Windows file manager. This will allow you to quickly access the webpage or document whenever you need to without having to type in the URL or search for the file.
In order to save a link to a webpage as a shortcut in the Windows file manager, you need to first obtain the URL of the webpage. This can be done by copying the URL from your web browser’s address bar. Once you have the URL, open the Windows file manager. Navigate to the folder where you want to save the shortcut. Right-click in the folder and select “New” and then “Shortcut”.
In the “Create Shortcut” window, paste the URL of the webpage into the “Type the location of the item” field. Click “Next”. In the “Type a name for this shortcut” field, enter a name for the shortcut. Click “Finish”.
The shortcut should now be visible in the folder. When you double-click on the shortcut, it will open the webpage in your default web browser. This is a great way to quickly access a webpage or document without having to type in the URL or search for the file every time.
Additionally, you can drag the shortcut to the desktop or to any other folder in order to save it in a more convenient location. You can also right-click on the shortcut and select “Properties” in order to add an icon, change the name, or make other changes.
As you can see, saving a link to a webpage as a shortcut in the Windows file manager is a quick and easy way to access webpages and documents. This can be especially useful for IT administrators who need to quickly access certain webpages or documents on a regular basis.
