Create an icon for a specific web address

Howdy !


Hoping someone can point me in the right direction to learn how to create an icon on the BB to direct the device to a specific website. I'm running BES and my devices are 8820's with a mix of the 4.2 and 4.5 code. I'm still figuring out how to work the MDS studio and all the tech notes I've found so far seem a bit complex just to put on icon on the BB and have it got a specific web address.


Thanks !
