Internet Explorer 11 is the default web browser for our organization and it has to remain that way.  We use a Wordpress Avada theme for our intranet homepage and have links to various business sites, some of which work better in Chrome.  I know you can create desktop shortcuts to open sites directly in Chrome rather than your default browser:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" https://yourwebsitehere.com

Is there a way to do this same thing within WordPress or Sharepoint links?  I am doubting so but I thought I would ask.  I don't want to create desktop shortcuts for some sites that require Chrome and would rather just have all links on Wordpress for ease of use.  Again, I have to have IE 11 as the default browser for a variety of reasons.
