URL shortcut icon format by Drag&Drop URL column icon is very different from other browsers



  • Hi,
    I want to make URL shortcut icon on Windows desktop by D&D.
    Edge can't do it , so I want to use our Vivaldi.
    But I have a trouble that an icon by Vivaldi is very different from other browsers. I can't use some apps.
    I want development team to improve that shortcut icons by Vivaldi is similar format to IE ,Firefox ,Chrome.

    I paste them with notepad.exe.

    【Vivaldi for Windows64bit 1.15.1147.42】
    [InternetShortcut]
          URL=https://www.yahoo.co.jp/
    
    【Firefox60.0.2】
    [InternetShortcut]
    URL=https://www.yahoo.co.jp/
    IDList=
    HotKey=0
    IconFile=C:\Users\hogehoge\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\hogehoge.default\shortcutCache\_oLayE2LiWs+fPnty08OuA==.ico
    IconIndex=0
    
    【IE11Win10RS4】
    [{000214A0-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}]
    Prop3=19,11
    [InternetShortcut]

    URL=https://www.yahoo.co.jp/
    

    Dest Regards,

  • @hiroinjapan I tested by creating a desktop shortcut to https://www.yahoo.co.jp from Vivaldi and from Firefox.

    In both cases, the Vivaldi icon was used since that is my default browser.

    What is your feature request? Do you just want a different icon or something else?

    @hiroinjapan What is missing for you in such shortcut?
    A page-specific icon? Or what?
    Please explain us.



  • Hi Pesala, Hi Gwen,
    Thank you for your reply.
    The shortcut I said is ".url" ,not ".website".

    As a result the pictures of shortcut icon by various browsers show default browser icon. This is specification on WindowsOS.

    The following is validations after posted.
    A shortcut by Vivaldi contains "LF" ,not "CR+LF" as linefeed code and doesn't is given"CR+LF" nor "LF" at end of file.
    The ones by IE11 and Firefox for Win contain "CR+LF" and are given "CR+LF" at the end.
    One by Vivaldi cannot use apps I use.
    Ones by IE11 and Firefox can use by Vivaldi and apps.

    I think that
    the shortcut (*.url) that made by Vivaldi by D&D to desktop
    is used "CR+LF" and is given "CR+LF" at the end of file
    for spec of WinOS and for taking on different browsers based on purpose.

    Thanks.

    @hiroinjapan The LF in the .url file is a bug.
    I will report it.
    Bug is: VB-41011 ".url shortcut file has wrong content!"
