Great question!

It depends on what browser you’re using to go to the web.

First, you go to the website using your browser.  Then…

Internet Explorer: Right-Click on some blank area on the page.  You should see “Create Shortcut” about midway down the list, click that.  Click Yes on the confirmation.

Chrome: Click the menu icon (3 horizontal bars) in the upper right of the screen.  Choose Tools->Application Shortcuts.  If you just click OK now it will create a Desktop shortcut, a Startmenu item, and a Taskbar item.  Uncheck the ones you don’t want.
