Bookmark a Web Page on Internet Explorer
Creating a personal bookmark on Internet Explorer (IE) is easy. It lets you have quick access to a site you frequently use, or just for an easy way to get to a site that you wanted to check out at a later date. Learning how to make a bookmark is a good way to make your browsing experience productive and convenient, and the best news: it’s very easy to do.
