Question on ".lnk" (Internet shortcuts)

pseudocoderpseudocoder Posts: 673Member ✭✭
I recall a few years ago of having a .lnk file (I *believe* it was) on my desktop that opened my web browser, and redirected to a tech site. I've tried searching for .lnk, but found countless references to local disk shortcuts, and that's not what I am after, nor do I mean html documents with anchor tags.

Does anyone know how these Internet shortcuts are made? If so, could you post the procedure (Windows targets). This is for a Visual Basic project, but my question is more Internet related than VB related I believe.

TIA

    :
    Right-click on your desktop, go to the New submenu and choose shortcuts. In the location, instead of clicking Browse, type a web address. Go to the next step, give the shortcut a sensible name, then finish the wizard and you have a .lnk file that points at that web address.

    Hope this helps,

    [blue]Jonathan, you never cease to amaze me! No wonder I couldn't find what I was looking for with .lnk... it's .url

    Thank you so much.[/blue]
