"... the entire URL must be put

JR, I find it to be not true. when I do it, the path to the executable,
surrounded by quotes, a space, and followed by the address without
quotes because there are no spaces in the address.

if the quotes are necessary for the address, please explain why.

Hi Mike,



Funny. I agree on the billing point. :) 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.

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.
