    :cool: I keep a few shortcuts to gaming/educational websites that my son uses. With XP, I noticed that, when dragging a URL to the desktop,any mini iconnext to the URLin the address bar would result in a snazzy customised icon: something my son can instantly recognise.

    Of course ICOULD dig out some fun icons from my own . . . I just wondered if thisimport from IEwas something that Vista can do with the right technique.

    Can anybody help ?

    If you drag the 'favicon' appearing in the address bar to either the favourites list or desktop that is precisely what happens, well it does for me anyway.
