A bookmark is a file containing a web URL, or a folder or attachment containing bookmarks. Clicking on a bookmark's icon displays the web page in your default browser.
CDE uses a file extension of .url to identify bookmarks. Double click the index.html icon in the Sample Bookmarks folder to read more about bookmarks in CDE.
The Folders subpanel of the Front Panel contains a Personal Bookmarks control. When you click the control, a File Manager view appears on the desktop. It is initially empty. You can create bookmarks to put in this folder. These URLs are then easily accessible through the Front Panel.
You can create bookmarks in any of the following ways:
Drag URL text onto the Personal Bookmarks window. This creates a new file. The new file name is Untitled.url unless there is another file in your Personal Bookmarks folder with that name. In that case, a dialog box appears telling you to rename the new file.
Drag URL text onto the Personal Bookmarks control on the Front Panel. This creates a new file with a .url extension.
Copy an existing bookmark: Use the File Manager Selected menu to copy an existing bookmark into your Personal Bookmarks folder, or hold down the Control key and drag the icon onto the opened Personal Bookmarks File Manager window or the Personal Bookmarks control on the Front Panel.
You can create a bookmark using any URL that is normally available, such as URLs with http addresses.
If you drop URL text or a bookmark file or folder onto the Front Panel mail icon, a Mailer Compose window appears with the corresponding bookmark as an attachment.
