Oops, need to modify my previous message a bit.
Regarding creating shortcuts to webpages other than the default browser…
One must first include the path to the browser in quotes then add the URL to the webpage. Here’s an example:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" https://www.freedomscientific.com/Downloads/JAWS

Funny. I agree on the billing point. J Regarding creating shortcuts to webpages using a browser other than the default browser, it can be done as I previously stated, just remember that you must add the path to the browser’s executable first, then add the URL second. Also know that the entire URL must be put in quotes or else the shortcut won’t work.
I know, it sucks,
They should have had the foresight to do those the same way they did files;
Typical short sightedness by software developers;
Bet they don’t screw up the billing though;
That always works like its supposed too;

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