How To Put A Shortcut On Your Toolbar

If you have a website that you visit frequently, you can save time by learning how to put a shortcut on your toolbar.  This is different than using a bookmark, which is also a helpful way to find a site quickly, as learning how to put a shortcut on your toolbar will give you immediate access to the site with a click of a button. Here's how to put a shortcut on your toolbar

  1. Add-ons.  Regardless of the web browser you are using, you can use add ons to put a shortcut on your toolbar.  This can be done under the 'tools' tab that you will see when online.  It is typically located at the top right of your screen.  Click on 'tools' and go to 'manage add ons'.  This will allow you to create a shortcut, which will later be shown at the top of your screen.
  2. Favorites.  An easy way to learn how to put a shortcut on your toolbar is by saving your favorite websites under your favorites.  Every web browser has an area where you can save your favorite websites, and access it with a click of a button.  While you are on the website you frequently visit, look at the upper left section of your computer screen.  You'll see the 'favorites' tab. Click it and then select 'add to favorites'. Now, whenever you want to find that site again, just visit your list of favorites and select the site from the pull down menu.

Add-ons and favorites are the simplest way to learn how to put a shortcut on your toolbar.  You will only have access to these short cuts from your home computer.  If you want to be able to see a list of shortcuts from ANY computer, consider using Google bookmarks or another social bookmarking website.
