How to Add a Website to a Mac Desktop

By Alex Smith

If you have a number of websites you visit regularly, it may be convenient to add direct links for them to your desktop. This is easy to do on a Mac. The specifics may be slightly different depending on which browser and operating system you are using, but the differences are minor.

Step 1

Launch your Internet browser.

Step 2

Go to the website you want to add to your desktop.

Step 3

Select the entire URL from the address bar, then drag and drop it onto the desktop. An icon will appear that takes you directly to that site when clicked.

Step 4

Drag and drop the icon to the left of the URL instead of the text if Step 3 doesn't work.
