Is there an easy way to create a desktop shortcut that opens Firefox to a specific link?

Question by ouroboros0427: Is there an simple way to create a desktop shortcut that opens Firefox to a specific link?
So here’s the deal…

I have created a desktop shortcut for my daughter to access her favorite website. The problem is that Windows is not opening Firefox like it is supposed to. Upon double-clicking the shortcut, Windows informs me that there is no program associated with the file. I have gone into “Folder Options -> File Types” and associated .url extensions (subclassed as “internet shortcuts”) with the command line that opens Firefox. Am I missing something or is there another bourgeois that I am not taking into consideration?

All I want to do, ultimately, is to create an picture on my desktop that my daughter can click on to get to her favorite website to play games.

Any help is appreciated.

Answer by Gnomon
Create the shortcut as follows:

1. Click on the Begin button and navigate to the place in the Begin menu that has Firefox. But instead of clicking on it, hold down CTRL and drag the firefox onto your desktop. This will make a shortcut.

2. Test the shortcut by double clicking on it. It will bring you to the normal default begin page in Firefox. Close Firefox.

3. Now right click on the shortcut and choose Properties. One of the properties is the “target” which will end with firefox.exe”

4. Add a space after this, then place the URL that you want to go to in Firefox, for example http://answers.yahoo.com

5. Click OK to end the properties window and test the shortcut.
