Aleida.net icons for your desktop
icons for your desktop! This way, any time you want
to look for shoes, hair products, Hispanic parades or holidays, Spanish
words, information about hair care, or lots of other topics, you can go
straight to the desired page just by double-clicking an icon on your
desktop. Here's how to do it
Firefox and other browsers
Mac OS X
In Microsoft Internet Explorer...
Just drag the little pictures
from the list just
below to your desktop (“drag” means “put the mouse cursor
over the image, press the left mouse button, move the mouse cursor to the
desktop and then release the mouse button”). When a security warning
pops up ("Are you sure you want to copy or move files to this
Yes (to assure yourself that this is safe, after creating the
icon, right-click on it and look at its Properties and see the Aleida.net
or Amazon.com address in the URL box.)
After you drag any of the links above to your desktop, any other link that
you drag from my website to your desktop should get the icon
automatically, as long as it is a link to a page at Aleida.net. NOTE:
This procedure was tested in Internet Explorer 8. In earlier
versions, the new link might not get the icon. In that case, if you want
the icon you can add it as explained in the next section, except that in
Internet Explorer, you can not drag the little icon. Instead you should
download it to your desktop. Right click on the following
link, choose "Save Target As" (or "Save Link As")
and save it to your desktop (or other desired place):
Then you can edit the properties of your Aleida.net desktop links to show
this icon as described below.
In Firefox, Chrome, Safari,
and Other Browsers...
Other browsers don't let you drag Internet icons to the desktop. If you try
to drag the icons in the previous section, you only get the image, not the
link. But you can drag links. So if you download the icon separately, you can
assign it to any link afterwards in the Shortcut properties dialog. First:
- Drag this little icon to your desktop
(doesn't work in Internet Explorer):
|| (or download the icon as described above)
- Drag any link from any page on my website to your desktop.
You can use this link right now, but if it doesn't have an image,
and you want to add one, follow the next steps.
- Right-click on the link you just dragged to the desktop and choose
- Click Change Icon.
- Click Browse, click Desktop, and then choose
(which is the filename of the icon),
click Open, then click OK, and OK again.
After you do this once, other shortcuts to Aleida.net pages might
pick up the icon automatically (if not, use the same procedure for each one
to add the icon). Here are shortcuts to the most-referenced pages:
The last one won't get images automatically because it is not at
Aleida.net, but you can use the procedure above to add the image if you wish.
In Mac OS X...
You can drag links to the desktop, but not icons, and also the title of
the link isn't copied. So you will see an HTML icon with the URL as a title,
It's not pretty but it works if you double-click on it.
