    Yes I right click Icon open properties but how do I get proper URL for original target and change short cut target in property box?

  • Rinoo Kumari Aug 22, 2010

    If the target is on your pc then use My Computer to reach that .exe file and copy its address from the address window and copy it in the Properties window meant for the target address.
    And if it happens to be on the internet then copy the address from the Internet Explorer and copy it there.

  • louis sorbi Aug 26, 2010

    I get it cut, copy, and paste URL or .exe file and paste in address bar of short cut Icon?

  • Rinoo Kumari Aug 26, 2010

    Lou,


    That's right. Just select, copy and paste. And you are on.

  • louis sorbi Aug 27, 2010

I want to have facebook as my home page on my laptop,but i have to click on my internet logo to bring facebook up without logging in.if i click on my facebook shortcut logo it takes me to google page where...


ok here goes.... #1 reguarding facebook icon.. Try right clicking on icon and choose file location and write down or remember specificly "the entire path." then, press ok to return to icon. right click again and choose properties/shortcut and on this page be sure the "target" and file location are the same. If not, change the target to match the location. Apply & OK.
#2 Click to open the IE. go to the exact web page you wish to be your default page. click tools/internet options/ and on the HOME PAGE box @ top, click the USE CURRENT button. apply & OK to close. That should do it. But before i close, I must add one thing.. By what you are describing, you may very well have some kind of virus. Please make sure you are running a Virus Protection Program regularly. You may also want to download and install a Great Supplemental Program named "Malwarebytes". It will scan and clean your system if what Im suspecting is true.. GREAT LUCK!! Lucky4lynn2 :)
