Desktop Folder to Start Webmin


How would I create a Desktop folder/icon to start Webmin.

I've been starting using Firefox will 'htpps://localhost:10000' Works fine this way but I would like to start it from my desktop.

Thanks

You don't say if you are using KDE or Gnome. Anyhow, if it is KDE right click your desktop then go to Create New and select Link to location (URL) now fill in the name for the link and the web address htpps://localhost:10000 save the file and away you go.

After a bit of googling i found the principle is the same. Right click your desktop and select Create Launcher in the Type drop-down box select Location, give the launcher a name, put 'https://localhost:10000' in the Command box, save the file and away you go...
