    URL and icons


    I'm new to VB, how would I create a desktop icon that when double clicked opens up a Webpage.

    I have created a new desktop shortcut and changed the properties to my personal icon. However i want to send this to clients. The icon is lost when you mail it out as the shortcut and icon have seperate properties.

    I would like to create this in VB, so that i can send the icon to "Computer iliterate users!" so that they can just drag and drop an icon on their desktop, or just double click and install a shortcut on to their desktop with the correct icon showing.

    many thanks,

    i don't think this qualifies for the this section of the forum...try a VB forum.
