What is URL file?

An .URL file, also known as the Uniform Resource Locator, contains the web address that can be accessed through a web browser. The URL file can be created by dragging the web address from the internet browser onto the Windows desktop. Generally, the web locator address is not saved with an URL extension in the internet browser, and the file can be accessed with any common text editor to edit the URL address.

Programs that support URL file

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the URL file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the URL file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the URL file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the URL file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the URL file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the URL file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
