    Okay... I'm new to OS X. Dragging a url location from a browser to the desktop obviously creates a .webloc link.

    But is there a way to force the .webloc to be named after the Page Name rather than the URL location?

    So, for example:

    "Automatically re-mount a volume in OS X? - Mac Forums"

    rather than

    "forums.macrumors.com/"

    I don't think there's a way to 'force' it to be that way; you'll have to manually change the filename.

    What browser are you using? When I drag the URL from this thread to my desktop the file is named: "Dragging url to desktop? (name .webloc file the page name, not url location?) - Mac Forums.webloc" This is in Safari.

    Safari does, but it looks like Firefox doesn't. Bug the Firefox developers I guess. :)
