In IE6 I used to be able to do this easily using the right-click, properties
method. Now all I get is a window with just the General and Security Tabs. I
get the same thing if I try via Windows Explorer.
Also, how do I get rid of the annoying ".url" endings in my favorites. In
IE6 this wasn't a problem and never had ".url" show up on any of them. No, I
cannot and do not want to hide all extensions for all file types - this is
not an option for me.
I've searched but all I see is other problems which I hope I never have!
(and maybe won't even find out if I can't get IE7 to behave). btw, when I
right-click a favorite/bookmark in Opera, I can easily edit the url and none
of them show .url on them either - just like IE6 used to do. In IE7, if I
rename a favorite and remove the .url part, the link breaks.
Anyway, I'm running IE v7.0.5730.11 on WinXP Pro SP2 (w/all updates).
I also use Opera and Firefox, but Opera is my default browser at the moment.
And if it matters, I use the latest AVG Free anti-virus, Sana Security
SafeConnect and sometimes I scan with Spybot S&D.
