For PDFs I open that I want to keep I save into a folder somewhere else on the computer filed in an applicable folder.

Part of it has to do with opening PDF docs from websites such as Groupon and every time I attempt to open th document it saves itself again and in some string of information that doesn’t identify what it’s about, otherwise I wouldn’t have to continuously re-visit, say, Groupon to view the pfd doc. My Question: what happens if I delete all the saved downloads in the downloads file ? I realize I can eliminate duplicates, there must be a more efficient way to handle downloads- one they’re installed, are they eliminable ? Thanks !

In Internet Explorer, menu bar, File, Send, Shortcut to Desktop will create the shortcut to the page you are on at the time.

If you are trying to save a shortcut to a folder on your computer that contains the files for your site, Windows Explorer, Right click the folder, Send to, Desktop (create shortcut).
