Create Shortcut to Access Your Favorite Websites

Like me, almost all of you have few most wanted websites and should be able to access them as easily as possible. But what system you’re using to access your favorite sites easily? Using bookmarks is certainly not the best option. So, what about creating shortcuts for that?

You can create shortcuts for your favorite sites and call them anywhere in the system. The site will open in your default browser. Follow as described below.

Run Internet Explorer (tested on Internet Explorer 9) and open a desired website. Save the address with Favorite – Add to favorite or use Alt + Z key. (See screenshot below).

Right click the new bookmark and select properties.

Place the cursor in the input field of ‘Shortcut Key’ under ‘Web Document’ tab. Now press any key combination that has still not been used such as ‘Ctrl + Alt + A’ and click OK to save the changes. Repeat this process for other website and close the browser.

In the future you can press these key combinations in windows or any other application to open your web sites. Each website will open in new tab in your default browser.
