I did a Macrium image restore. Prior to this when I dragged from any browser's location bar I got a html or htm link. I some how did this when I tried to get when I tried to get the standard right-click and not the url truncated. I can't seem to find the hack. Anyway the .url extension is showing with NeverShowExt in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\InternetShortcut and this should be one of the 'super hidden files'. What has worked is using Types program. You can see the program at this address izt.name/apps/types/ . It shows that IE is the url association albeit Firefox opens the url. How do I go about fixing this without using Types program? Years ago I remember reading that installing browsers can do this but uninstalling everything but IE showed no change and reinstalling also. Types will change icons but this isn't working with the url suffix. How would I change the icon? Thanks in advance.
