URL Shortcut dragged to desktop is blocked by default
This seems to be a similar issue as was reported in VB-41011 but I read that this was "fixed." It is not.
- Drag the URL (grasping the padlock icon) to the desktop on Windows10 and release. A named URL file is created and saved to the desktop.
- Double-click the desktop shortcut and the following warning appears:
It is possible to right-click the shortcut and Unblock it so it will
open without the warning. But doing this same task from other Chromium-based browsers (I tested Edge-DEV and Brave) saves the shortcut with no security flag, allowing it to open immediately.
@gwen-dragon I have just done so.
I confirmed your assessment that adding a carriage return to the end of the .url text file in Notepad++ allows the shortcut to open without the challenge.
As a possible enhancement, might it be possible to have the generated shortcut file use the favicon file from the original site? I notice that while dragging the shortcut from the browser to the desktop Windows does so, but one the mouse button is released the shortcut reverts to the default program to open it. (Vivaldi Snapshot for me.)
@Gwen-Dragon Just to bump this, the problem remains in the latest Snapshot 4.0.2312.13 (Official Build) (64-bit).
