[macvoiceover] Re: putting a website link on the desktop?

OK I wrote a AppleScript that will make webloc URL files. You can get it from my public iMac folder my iMac name is gregkearney This script will make a .url file that is cross platform meaning it will work both in Mac and Windows. the iMac disk has both the script file and the script application. You run this and what ever page you are on a webloc url file for that page will be created on the desktop. This does not save the whole page just the location to the page. Put it in your Safari scripts folder ~/Library/Scripts/Applications/Safari and launch it from the script menu.


Hope this helps.

yes, but it's a cached paged. if I wanted a live page on the desktop I wouldn't know a way to do it.

David,

It does put the link, in this case, on the desktop and it does say that it is an "HTML" file. It looks like a web arkyve, but most importantly, it works.

David,

I found that if you open the page, go into menus and do a save as, you can put the link where you want it.

Thanks.

sorry Keith, that does not work.. The only way I know to do this would be to create a file with the link in it and drop the file on your desktop. I'm still loooking.

Hello every one,

Can some one tell me how to put a website link on the desktop? I do it so seldom that I just forgot.

Thanks.
