Hi windows_mss,

Hopefully, you don't find a way to do this automatically. I'd be really frustrated as a user if every site I visit created a short cut on my desktop because that site thinks they're very important. I prefer to keep control over my desk top; thank you :=)

That said, search Google for

create shortcut vbscript

You'll find references to the CreateShortCut method of the WSH object that you can to create a short cut in VB Script. You can use Com interop to reuse these objects in .NET.

There are other, more "native" ways to do it too, so you may need to search for different terms as well (C#, VB.NET instead of VBscript and so on)
