I'd like to add a browser shortcut to the Raspberry desktop, have followed an old post (https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=22235) which suggests creating a text file such as below

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Raspberry Pi website
Comment=The infamous Raspberry Pi computer

I've done this, but when clicking the textfile just the textfile itself opens. Suggestions welcome.

Issue resolved after adding an icon graphic... just creating an empty file with .jpg extension was sufficient.
