Dynamic website shortcut

Is there any way I can create a DYNAMIC website shortcut to put on my desktop. I know how to create a static one (by viewing the source code and saving it as an htm or html file onto the desktop). But I wonder if I can create a dynamic one which will always take me to the updated version of the website. When I click my static shortcut and get to the site, I've tried hitting the refresh button, but that doesnt' do anything. It will always show me the version of the website that existed when I created the shortcut. Is my request possible?

What browser are you using?

If IE -> in tools -> internet options -> general under temporary internet files click on Settings

choose Every time

And please write back if it helped...

Mate,  Not possible with the link you are using.

If after going to the link, you hit refresh and it is displaying the same content, then the specifics of the link is in the query string.  And this is what needs to change.

You'll need to reference the page with the form or dynamic content to get to the appropriate page.

Only other way is progamically creating a query string, but unless there is some structure to that query string you are fighting a losing battle.

I tried setting it to "Every time you start Internet Explorer" and to "Every visit to the page." It still did not work. I guess there really is no way to do it.
