Here's a cool tip for Windows 98, ME or XP: Add Google to your desktop - just right click the following link and click Save target as:

&lt;a href='http://www.geocities.com/george467/google.txt'&gt;google.txt&lt;/a&gt;

Save it in C:\WINDOWS\Web as Google.HTM. Now add it to your active desktop: Right click the desktop, select active desktop and click 'customize my desktop'. Click Add, No, and type in C:\WINDOWS\Web\Google.HTM in the location box. Now click OK. This looks best on a white desktop background, but you can still have anything you want. Clicking the logo will go to GOOGLE.COM or type your search in the box and click 'Search Google'. A browser window will open and your search results will be displayed.

&lt;HTML&gt;&lt;BODY&gt;
&lt;center&gt;
&lt;FORM method=GET action='http://www.google.com/search'&gt;
&lt;TABLE bgcolor='#FFFFFF'&gt;&lt;tr&gt;&lt;td&gt;
&lt;A HREF='http://www.google.com/'&gt;
&lt;IMG SRC='http://www.google.com/logos/Logo_40wht.gif' border='0'
ALT='Google' align='absmiddle'&gt;&lt;/A&gt;
&lt;INPUT TYPE=text name=q size=25 maxlength=255 value=''&gt;
&lt;INPUT type=submit name=btnG VALUE='Google Search'&gt;
&lt;/td&gt;&lt;/tr&gt;&lt;/TABLE&gt;
&lt;/FORM&gt;
&lt;/center&gt;

&lt;/BODY&gt;
&lt;/HTML&gt;

Hey George, I was wondering ... With the amount of shameless Google Promos going on lately - are they paying for referrals?

&lt;HTML&gt;&lt;BODY&gt;
&lt;center&gt;
&lt;FORM method=GET action='http://www.google.com/search'&gt;
&lt;TABLE bgcolor='#FFFFFF'&gt;&lt;tr&gt;&lt;td&gt;
&lt;A HREF='http://www.google.com/'&gt;
&lt;IMG SRC='http://www.google.com/logos/Logo_40wht.gif' border='0'
ALT='Google' align='absmiddle'&gt;&lt;/A&gt;
&lt;INPUT TYPE=text name=q size=25 maxlength=255 value=''&gt;
&lt;INPUT type=submit name=btnG VALUE='PAY ME!!'&gt;
&lt;/td&gt;&lt;/tr&gt;&lt;/TABLE&gt;
&lt;/FORM&gt;
&lt;/center&gt;

&lt;/BODY&gt;
&lt;/HTML&gt;

Excellent tip George. I'm runnng Windows ME and I use Google a lot, so having the search window available right there on the desktop is great way to get to what I need quickly. Good Posting :-)

Alright, what a great idea, don't know why I didn't think of it. Unfortunately, it sort of ruins my background picture. Is it possible to make the background transparent? And I think your image link may be bad... maybe it's just me.
