Editors' Review

Though easy to use, this small utility that creates desktop shortcuts to the Web merely duplicates what Windows already does and adds more clutter when you browse. Shortcut doesn't require installation. Just run the small program, type the URL and name of your favorite site into the corresponding text fields, and press Create Shortcut. Though the program is easy to use, an ad banner appears with each desktop link; you're better off creating a Windows shortcut so you won't have to put up with intrusive advertising. No help file is included, but one is needed for such a simplistic program. This freeware application doesn't offer any additional functionality or features and, with its annoying banner ad, it isn't worth the download for any user.
