3. That’s it. The file should now be on your desktop. Anytime you want to bypass your regular homepage and just get the browser running, click it. In fact, I’ve even dragged it to my quick-launch toolbar for easier access.

Oh, here’s a bonus idea for our more advanced users who know how to program in HTML or have access to some kind of web page creation software. If that’s you, try making a page similar to the one above, but with links to your most frequently accessed sites.

A page with 20 or so of your favorite links won’t make this page load that much slower (we’re talking 10ths of a second), but it will make getting to your favorite sites much easier.
