    IE 10: How to create shortcut to a page

    On previous versions I would right click on a tab and select "Create Shortcut." It would ask permission to put it on the desktop it was done and now available to move it somewhere else. I can't find a similar move in IE 10.

    Place the site in your browsers "favorites", then create the shortcut by right clicking on the site you just added to favorites.

    You can right click any blank area of a page and select "Create shortcut", which does what you describe.

    Based upon the email message from my post I tried CLiNT's method and it worked and then I tried without creating a "favorite" and sure enough the "Create shortcut" option was not there. Then I logged on here and saw Bruce's method and "Create shortcut was there without creating a "favorite." I don't get it but thanks to both of you. I can now save shortcuts again.

    One thing did not change between IE9 and IE10 . . . click on "file", click on "send", click on "shortcut to desktop". ...Done!

    Let me guess the question . . . and here's the answer: You need to enable the "Menu Bar" to get to "File".
