How do I add to homescreen, maybe?

Just started using Construct 2? Post your questions here

I wondered something, I know on windows and on android, the user can have a shortcut to an internet website, but it is tricky to set up by himself, so instead of letting him do this tricky work, I wondered if it could be possible to do it in C2, like calling a function that would create this shortcut on the homescreen.

Why? Because people line easy things, and letting him add the game to his homescreen/desktop means it can go back to it so much more easily.

The problem is, I don't even know if it is possible to do in a reliable way for the many OS there are, I dln't even know if there is a standard way of doing it, so could someone tell me if it is doable across Windows/Linux/Mac OS /Android/iOS without too much hassle?
Game design is all about decomposing the core of your game so it becomes simple instructions.

No you can't. Imagine if whenever you browsed the internet your desktop got filled up with random page icons. That wouldn't be good ;)
