It is sometimes useful to have direct access to a website. Here is how to create an internet shortcut on your desktop to access it directly

- Access your mailbox and reduce the window to access your desktop
- Click the link of the internet page on the desktop by grabbing the link on the padlock or icon placed to the left of the link. See image below.
