Create site shortcut by dragging
A quick way to create a shortcut from different sites in Firefox, Chrome and Edge browsers is to drag the open website you want to the desktop. This method also works on many Linux desktops.

Then minimize the browser window using Restore Down option or double window (as shown).
You will see a lock in the corner of the site address in the browser, grab that icon with the mouse and drag it to your desktop screen and release it. Just like that, a shortcut of the desired page was created on your desktop.
Now you can change the shortcut name of your desired site.

Then, at the bottom of the window, click on “Finish”.
Your shortcut is now created and you can double-click it to open the site you want in your computer’s default browser.
