so I saved manually all the shortcuts of the files in desktop, by dragging them, they appear not to have an extension but I figured out they have the extension .url
unfortunately, my sharepoint admin has blocked uploading of .url files, but I can upload .htm files
I figured out that opening the .url file with notepad, and saving the exact text as .htm file, it works! ie. it goes to the target url, plus it is allowed to be uploaded at my sharepoint
my problem is now to do this in batch: to convert the .url files into .htm files
unfortunately, a simple rename wont work: it produces a .htm.url file
is there a solution to this?
maybe in batch, copy the text of .url files and save it as .htm file?
