I have found web pages on my computer that I saved long ago and can't remember where they're located.  I started saving a text file (named "URL.txt") to the graphics folder with the URL of the page.  Can this be automated?  Even better, can an internet shortcut pointing to the web page be saved in the graphics folder?  That way, if one finds a web page on his/her computer, there's a way to find one's way back to the original page.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Save a web page to your hard drive.
2. Navigate to the folder where it was saved.
3. Open the folder with the same name (plus "_files") and there should be a file there with the URL of the original web page, either a text file or an internet shortcut.



FireFox is a great browser.  I've been using it for quite a while and prefer it over any others I've tried (Netscape and that junky one from Microsoft).  Thanks.
