I use Firefox as my default browser. I have one web address that must be opened in Internet Explorer. How can I create a desktop shortcut to that address, and force the shortcut to launch IE, rather than Firefox?

Thanks Arctos. The Firefox extension works a treat - hadn't spotted it before.

I second IETab; but to answer your original question, you can create a desktop shortcut to "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"

and then right-click it, properties, and change the target to something like "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" http://www.computing.net
