A web page in Internet Explorer’s Favorites cannot be sent to desktop


When selecting a web page from the Favorites of Internet Explorer and clicking “Send to Desktop" from the popup menu, you may see no shortcut created on the desktop.IE Favorites Send to Desktop

If you repeat the same operation again, you may receive the following error message:

“Windows could not create the shortcut. Check to see if the disk is full”.


The “Send To” menu is not supported from the Favorites menu of Internet Explorer when running in protected mode.


This is by design.
