Step 1 - I copied some URL files into a test folder.

Step 2 - I opened "File" then "Open URL files" and selected several URL files from the test folder.

Step 3 - I opened the selected files.

Step 4 - The selected URL files did not show/display in the right panel.

I followed the above steps for LNK files with no problems and was able to edit the link files.

Why is this not working with URL files?   :(

Are you certain you're on the URL tab?  LNK files get loaded to the LNK tab; URL files get loaded to the URL tab.

Definitely on the URL tab.  See attached.  Does my browser have to be open as well?  Is there a limit on the # of URL files that can be selected?  I selected 68 URL files in my TEST folder using File | Open URL Files, but the SCURLed.exe window would not re-open with the selcted files.

What do I need to do now?

Do they load if you select them in Windows Explorer and then drag-n-drop them onto the URL list in SCURLed?

@berkland: I think I fixed the issue you were experiencing.  Please try the version at  http://www.dcmembers.../scurled/SCURLed.zip and let me know if it works now.

The new zip file worked.  However, another problem occurred.  See attached screen view.  I clicked the "Save all changes" button.  Then I went back to my TEST folder and refreshed the screen.  See attached folder view.  Nothing changed.  What now?

You can. Just upload it as an attachment, but don't click the "insert attachment" link. It will appear as an attachment link at the bottom of the post.

Open up one of those URL files with a text editor and see if an "IconFile=<some path here>" line is there.  If so, this might be a refresh issue with Windows Explorer.

skwire, not sure how to open up URL files with a text editor, but I may have gotten what you need.  Attached preferences.txt file is TXT file of URL file that had the proper icon.  Attached measuredup.txt file is TXT file of URL file that did NOT have the proper icon.  Neither file has an "IconFile=<some path here>" line.  Is this what you need???

If it's just a text file, then you can actually just quote the text in a post.  But I modified your post to remove the attachthumb markup so that they would show.

@berkland: Both of those text files you attached are HTML files, not URL files.  A URL file is just a renamed INI file and the contents of one looks something like this:

[InternetShortcut]
IconFile=C:\Users\skwire\AppData\Local\Xmarks\favicons\2h5x8-m8tUI.ico
IconIndex=0
URL=http://en-us.www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/about/

To view a URL file, you should be able to just drag and drop the URL file onto a text editor like Notepad.
