    frustrated


    I always thought at least IE could open more than one .url ... but only the first .url opens.
    If I "send to" multiple .url to IE only the start/homepage opens ....

    if I assosiate .url to chrome too, then chrome opens e.g. 2 tabs but as windows passes the 2 .url file paths the tabs opened look like this again
    "file:///D:/4all/reisen/istanbul/hotels/ungeeignet/Manesol%20Old%20City%20Bosphorus.url"
    if .url stays assosiated with "Internet Browser" (not IE) the first .url gets passed to chrome

    Code:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Clients\StartMenuInternet\Google__Chrome__Portable\Capabilities\FileAssociations]".htm"="Google__Chrome__Portable__HTML"
    ".html"="Google__Chrome__Portable__HTML"
    ".shtml"="Google__Chrome__Portable__HTML"
    ".url"="Google__Chrome__Portable__HTML"
    ".xht"="Google__Chrome__Portable__HTML"
    ".xhtml"="Google__Chrome__Portable__HTML"
    ".webp"="Google__Chrome__Portable__HTML"
    So first I should get IE (if set as default) to open more than one .url .... ANY IDEAS VERY WELCOME

    I just tried it with PaleMoon. With "Open" from File Explorer, just one of the .html files gets opened in a new tab. With Drag & Drop from File Explorer, just one of the .html files opens to replace the current tab.

    This suggests it's something inherent with Windows and File Explorer.

    I also tried to copy the bookmark shortcuts from PaleMoon via Organizer to Windows File Explorer. Only the first of those shortcuts gets pasted to a folder.

    not so sure, because if I drag them to e.g. notepad++, all .url files get opened
