Re: Creating Webpage Desktop Shortcuts for Any Web Browser

one instance: if there's a website that works better with a browser that
is not set as the default browser, a copy of the desktop shortcut that
launches that browser can be copied to the clipboard and then pasted on
to the desktop, open it's properties and append the website URL to the
end of the path that launches the executable for the browser, and the
name of the shortcut needs to be renamed to something that reflects
which browser is opening the website, for example Sample Poems via
Chrome, or Kitty Land via Firefox.

That's not how desktop shortcuts, except those to files, have ever worked.

You can't right click on the shortcut to a program and say, "Open with,"
something else.

I have never heard of anyone, prior to now, wanting web URLs to open
with anything other than the web browser of their choosing.  If they
want to use another one then they can open the shortcut itself, copy the
URL, open the other web browser wanted at the moment, and paste it in.

Web desktop shortcuts have always opened with the default web browser
from day one.
