Nice add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It needs a small settings change to work. Once that's done, it works great. Follow this link for settings change.

At first glance, working with it is very easy. Used it for a while. Does anybody know if there are similar "shortcut" addons providing similar capabilities? I just want to compare them that is all.

Does what it says on the tin. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Used it as a workaround because Evernote Web Clipper is astonishingly crash-prone -- set up automatic import from a folder on my machine, pointed deskCut to it, and wham bam, bookmark clipping workaround. Not as good as if Web Clipper actually worked, but this ACTUALLY WORKS. Awesome.

"Not compatible" with multiproccess Rated 4 out of 5 stars

And yet still working like a champ, after all these years. Main problem being I cannot be 100% sure it´s not causing any undetected performance issues with e10s, which is why I have to take a star out of it. Otherwise, great.

Love this app!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Deskcut couldn't possibly be easier and more straightforward to use!! It works perfectly!!

Not bad ! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I have saves on desktop only with "Prompt for Path" (in preferences).
(Firefox 46.01 portableapps)

Great add-on, have used for years Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great add-on. Does just what I want it to do, and with the options I need. Have used it for years, and am so glad it's still active. I just updated to Firefox 45, and for the first time ever Deskcut stopped working. Fortunately just uninstalling and reinstalling Deskcut had it working again in less than a minute.

Works great! Would like an option to use a keyboard shortcut. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works great! Would like an option to use a keyboard shortcut rather than have to right click - select. Thanks for your work!

Useless Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This add-on is completely useless.Doesn't work. I need to look for something else to help me create desktop icons.

question Rated 3 out of 5 stars

is it possible to set/change the name and directory of a shortcut we create with this addon? (in pop-up window, not by going to the dir. and renaming the link...)

Still working after all these years! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great little extension! I've tried more recent ones, since Deskcut has stopped being developed, but for one reason or another, always end up having to default to it.

Only bug i have to report will probably affect very few people using it: the save path does not support special characters like ñ or ö (etc). Deskcut will always convert those characters to a different setting and create a folder elsewhere (eg: "C:\Désktop" becomes "C:\Désktop").

If you absolutely need to use that specific folder, you can circumvent this issue by creating a junction in windows using mklink on an elevated command prompt: "mklink /j C:\Désktop C:\Désktop" - basically fooling Deskcut into assuming that shortcut you just created is an actual folder.

This seems to not work on Windows. I think what this does is create a file on desktop, and when you click it, it opens the website?

The error I get when I click on "create deskcut" from context menu is:

NS_ERROR_FAILURE: Component returned failure code: 0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE) [nsILocalFile.initWithPath] deskcut.js:931:0

Incredibly useful and Rated 5 out of 5 stars

should be a native function of Firefox (hello, Mozilla?).

BUT: Please, please, please, dear author, finally implement a keyboard shortcut to create the deskcut even faster...

Didn't work, then it did Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I had a problem in one profile, where it wasn't working.
I used the Option to 'Prompt for Path', and 'Remember' the Path.
It was working fine, with that extra step - saving to my Desktop.

After saving deskCuts to my Desktop a couple of times I went back to using Find, which shows my Desktop folder - and it still works.

Not working Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Not working

Doesn't do anything. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Path is set correctly, nothing shows up there. Asked it to prompt me for a path, nothing happened.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Does only one very useful thing, but does it very well. I've been using it for years, including the period when it was not supposed to work (used nightly tester tools to "cheat"). One of my two favorite extensions.
Many thanks to the author!

deskCut Stopped working properly Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I absolutely LOVE deskCut. That's why I'm so bummed out now that it
does not work as it should anymore. I noticed I was not receiving the 'prompt for file path' since the upgrade to FF 35.0.
I know, I know this is NOT the proper place to post bugs.However, I followed the directions and tried to find the deskCut support contact info. It basically doesn't exist - at least I couldn't find it.

Finally! Where has this add-on been my whole life? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you very, very much! I file many of my bookmarks alongside the rest of my files in regular system folders, and making new bookmarks on-the-fly has always been a multi-step pain in my brain. Every time I would make a new bookmark, I would tell myself that there has got to be a better way, and now there is. Thank you for deskCuts, Evan Eveland! What a relief!
