Anyone know how this can be done.

For people that are requesting a link to a webpage online.
Where an email can be sent or program where a shortcut icon will be placed on the desktop of people systems that point to a webpage.

I would appreciate any advice

1. Open Internet Explorer and type in your desired address in Location bar.
2. Right click on ie icon to the left of the URL and to the right to words Address and drag it to desktop - when rleased you will see menu from which you should choose Create Shortcut.
3. Email created shortcut file from desktop as attachment.

Alternatively just email the bloody URL and ask people to click on it and bookmark it.

AtW,

your English is getting better all the time. However, I have to point out that you missed the words "yet again" from the end of your sentence.
