If the admin(s) closed off access to the command-line, he/she/they should definitely have closed down PowerShell. The latter is much more powerful.

he hasn't! lol!  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D  :P :P :P

but renaming .url to .htm doesn't go to the website unfortunately (I thought it did because I didn't realize it actually renamed to .htm.url)
so what should an htm file contain in order to visit an url?

I'd have thought that .url work as assumed as well *Shrug*

But here's an odd bit. I dragged the icon from the IE address bar for this page to the desktop, and it created a shortcut, and then opened it in notepad.

Now after poking at the properties dialog a bit I found that the file has a (hidden reguardless) file extension of .website (Windows 8.1 OS). If I create a new file in Notepad (with the above contents), and save it as a .website file (the extension disappears, but...) it works as assumed/desired.


Stripping it down a bit, apparently this is all that is necessary to get the shortcut file to work:

thanks but it opens it in a frame/box!
isn't there an html code that will just open a new window with the url? (or the same window, it doesn't matter, but in full size, not in a box!)

Bummer. Can you post the contents of one of the .url files so I can see what it does in a Win 7 VM?

Okay, I saved ^that^ using Notepad to a file named Kalos.url, double clicked it, and it opened in IE just fine. That was using IE8 on Server 2003

Yes, I don't disagree with that.
The problem is that I cannot upload .url files to my sharepoint site.
That's why I need another type of file that when I click it, it will transfer me to the relevant webpage
and htm file maybe?

something else, is there a web/online editor for MS Office files (docx, xlsx, pptx, visio files, MS Project files, etc) for sharepoint, as rich as possible? as close as possible to the desktop versions?

Yeah, that would be Office 365, in the web/cloud/on-line edition.

I think I found a solution!
to the problem of having an htm file that when you open it, it will visit a webpage!

that htm file should have the command to REDIRECT to an url!
is this good solution? how can I do it? what is the htm code for it?
