This topic has very little to do with Windows and a lot more to do with the Chrome browser (Google's browser).
I use Chrome mainly for comparison purposes, to make sure that the two web-sites I run appear properly, so I imported my bookmarks from Firefox when i installed Chrome. I have to ask why you are saving links to web-sites as desktop icons when every browser, including Chrome, has a built in method of bookmarking web-sites you want to go back to. I currently have about 3-400 bookmarks organised by subject.
If you look at the right hand end of the address bar in Chrome you will see a star shaped symbol. If you click on this it will bookmark the page you are looking at. You need to choose a location - either the bookmarks toolbar or a bookmarks folder - then click done.
To return to that web-site all you have to do is click on the link on the bookmarks bar or click on the link in a folder of links on the bar and you will be there ! This system is built into every browser and it avoids you cluttering up your desktop with links to web-sites. Much more elegant. It also allows you to back up your bookmarks to an HTML file where you can just save them against a computer failure or copy them into another browser should you wish to.
