Hello, friends! Thanks for tuning into this week’s tech tip. I remember 15 years ago teaching companies how to create desktop shortcuts to documents on their local computers or their network that they used a lot just to make it easier to get to things.

Pretty much all the companies that I’ve worked with are in the cloud. All their data is in the cloud. They’re using websites for most of the things that they’re doing all the time. So I thought it would be fun to do a tech tip this week on creating a shortcut on your desktop that points to a web page that you use all the time. An example could be a document in the cloud that you used multiple times a week.

I’m going to show you exactly how to do that in my YouTube video, so I hope you will take the time to watch… it’s less than 5 minutes!

And hey, I’m sure that there are plenty of people that know how to create a shortcut on their desktop to a web page. But I’m always surprised how many people don’t know how to do some of the basic things. I’m an IT person, so a lot of these kinds of actions come naturally to me because I do them all the time. So every once in a while in these tech tips, I want to give you a simple tip on how to do things more efficiently with your computer.

If you like the video, please act on that and like comment and consider subscribing to my YouTube channel. I would really appreciate that. I hope you’re having a great week!
