How about making available a desktop shortcut icon....click on it and you go straight to UU (or the forums).

I have one for another forum I frequent (auto, not uke), and it's really handy!

You can make one easy:
Right click your desktop
Scroll over "New"
Click "Shortcut"
In the box type http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/
Hit next, name it UU or whatever

Tada, after you made it you can change the icon graphic by right clicking on the shortcut and looking in the properties

That's great! Thanks! I'm techno-stupid, and even I was able to make that work!

Now....how can I make the icon (which works fine, BTW) look like the UU logo? (keeping in mind the tchno-stupid part) ;)

Thats gna be a little bit hard.

Unless you can create a ukulele symbol through Paint(considering you have windows) save it as a file and right click on the shortcut and use that as the logo.

I make ukuleleunderground As a home page when i open safari anyway. So its easier. Or you can bookmark it! either way, its the faster than typing
