Sub_title: Start web page from icon on desktop

(Thanks to SFR)

1.Create text file with this code:

(Example for seamonkey browser ->Puppy forum)
# /bin/sh

seamonkey http://murga-linux.com/puppy/

2. Save file with name you want. (do not use .txt at end of name)
3. In Rox (file manager) go to location you saved file.
4. Make file executable (right-click on file -> properties)
5. Drag file to desktop.
6. Right click on desktop icon for file.
To change name -> edit item
To change icon -> set icon
( normal icon set is located at /usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps )
When selecting an icon to use, 48X48 is the size used for desktop icons. So, pick an icon that has 48 in its name.

I have found, in trying to help people, that the things they do not tell you, are usually the clue to solving the problem.
