What is WEBSITE file?

Internet Explorer, being the default browser for Windows, has its own text files that fall into the category of web files. These .WEBSITE files are pinned website shortcuts created by the browser on the Windows platform. They contain a website icon and can be clicked on in order to access the website. They are known to be used for storing and accessing bookmarks. Creating website files can be very simple; all you need to do is to visit your favorite website and drag the URL to your desktop. Windows will then automatically create a website file acting as the IE Pinned Site Shortcut. 

Programs that support WEBSITE file

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the WEBSITE 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 WEBSITE file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the WEBSITE 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 WEBSITE 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 WEBSITE 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 WEBSITE file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
