    In Safari 6.0.2, is there a way to place a link on the desktop w/o "moving" the Safari screen over and dragging the link to the desktop? I tried copying and pasting, but the pasting part of that doesn't work.

    Thanks for your assistance!

    Drag your Desktop Folder on the Dock and drag to this Folder instead of the Dock.

    Edit: I feel your pain, I also have this problem, Apple should have a link to the Desktop when you right click the URL Bar, or a button next to it which makes this link.
    Another option would be a clever guy to make an extension to just this or add it to Glims.
