Creating Bookmarks and Desktop Shortcuts
« on: March 31, 2015, 07:37:00 AM »
This tutorial will show you how to bookmark on a Windows 7 PC in Google Chrome version 41.0.2272.101 m , Firefox 36.0.4 and IE 9

The first two things you are going to do will be the same for all three browsers.

When you have signed into Pogo, click on your screen name at the top of the screen:

That is a quick and easy way to get to your Profile page.

Next, click on your badges tab and tab to the very last page:

To bookmark in Google Chrome, click on the Star in the far right of the address bar:

When a web page has been successfully bookmarked, that star will turn yellow:

To link that web page to your desktop, look on the left-hand side of the address bar.  There will be a graphic of a piece of paper with the right corner folded over:

Left click and drag that image to an empty spot on your desktop.  A shortcut to that web page will be created.

To bookmark in Firefox, find the Bookmark tab at the top of the page:


Spoiler: show



Click on that tab and choose the Bookmark this Page option:

To create a shortcut to that page from your desktop, click on the graphic at the left side of the address bar (looks like a picture of a globe):

Spoiler: show


and drag it to an empty spot on your desktop.

To bookmark in IE9 (I haven't updated to IE10), click on the Star on the right side of the page:


Spoiler: show


Choose the option to Add to Favorites:

To create a shortcut to that page from your desktop, I had to first click on the tab for the bookmarked page (or any other page doesn't have to be bookmarked if you don't want it to be) and move it slightly.  It will become another window:

Now that you have it in another window, look at the left side of the address bar, the graphic there is the Pogo logo.  Left click on that logo and drag it to an empty spot on your desktop:

This is what your desktop shortcut will look like:

Just double click your shortcut and a browser page will open to your profile.

You're very welcome.  :-*  I'm glad I was able to help.

Pogo_Cactuar has posted on the Pogo Forums that they are aware of the reverse order of the badges and are looking into the matter.  So hopefully they will fix it soon.
