Desktop icons & their possiblities

Hello All,
Can anyone tell me whether this is possible or not and if so how to do it.
Create a desktop shortcut Icon that I can click and it will take me to a preset website IE my bank.

Click the e in your address bar and drag it to the desktop.

when your at the bank site right click and choose "create shortcut"

click ok when it tells you it's placing a shortcut on the desktop.

Go to the website.

Left click on the e in the address bar and, keeping the left mouse key depressed, drag it to your desktop.

Sorry my fault I should have explained that I am using Firefox not Explorer. Does the same principle apply?
Thanks Ray

Fine, no problem putting the icon on the desktop, I can then use it to access my bank (put the codes in of course) but I can find nowhere on the site that enables me to create a shortcut. There is a "link to" option but this means little to me.
