What are Internet Shortcut Files?

Internet Shortcut files are used to create shortcuts on your computer to Internet websites. They are similar to normal shortcut files, but while shortcut files are links to files stored locally on your computer, Internet shortcut files point to a file or resource that exists at a remote location accessible through the Internet.

Double-clicking on an Internet shortcut file will open up a website in your default browser. It is very easy to create a shortcut file on most modern operating systems; you can simply drag the URL from a browser's address bar to your home screen. The operating system will create an internet shortcut and associate it with that link.
