Questions and Answers
Used to drag and drop links from Chrome into Explorer. now it doesn't seem to do that. Tutorial says save as link file. I have tried: Drag and drop, copy and paste. I think it was caused by: New browser - may have to use Chrome instead
At the moment, Edge, unlike most browsers, does not support dragging links into its window. You will have to copy and paste the links into Edge. The tutorial also mentioned saving URLs as "link files", which means desktop shortcuts. To create a desktop URL shortcut, follow the instructions below.
- 1Highlight the link in the browser by clicking onto the address bar once and pressing "Ctrl" + "C" or right-clicking a hypertext and selecting "Copy link".
- 2Minimize your Windows to see your desktop, for example.
- 3Right click an empty area on the desktop and select "New" and "Shortcut".
- 4Paste the buffer contents into the "Type the location of the item". You can paste the link by pressing "Ctrl" + "V".
- 5Click "Next".
- 6Name a shortcut if you want.
- 7Click "Finish". Your shortcut (a link file) will be created.
