Morning all back again.
I'm bring ing up Google every time I want to get into the forum.
Surely there must be a way to save the web sight. Is it possible to put it in the start page or the desktop.
Surely there must be a simple answer to this. arram:eek::eek:

Are you using iExplorer (iE) from the start screen? IMO, doing so is a mess. If that is what you are interested in doing, then someone to help you will turn up.

I run Chrome from the desktop, and that's what I would recommend you do--unless you really like iE. If you like iE, then you can change it to run in desktop mode. Whatever you do, until you know better what you are doing, don't change iE from being the default browser.

If you right click on iE on the start menu, then you can pin the "program" to the desktop taskbar (acutally, it should already be there). Start iE from the taskbar, and use the gear icon to determine where iE runs. You probably want it to run on the desktop from what you say. Use internet options > programs and then the top item dealing with links.
