Question Web site icon

Is there a way to put icons on your desktop for different Web sites that you have in your bookmarks? Sure would save a lot of time.

Would you please explain the process once more. I don't understand why but I can't get it to work.

Left click and hold. I just left click, held and dragged it to the desktop and it stayed there. Pretty neat about the crtl+d deal. Didn't know about that keyboard shortcut for saving favorites.

I'm sorry but it still wont work. I can left click (and hold), The cursor changes to small black circle but when I drag it to my desktop (from my boormarks) and release the left button, the black circle just disappears. I also can't seem to get any box up on my desktop which tells me to create a shortcut here. I am also using an Opera 5.0 browser (if that makes any difference).
