Question ID: 71965
I need to Utils for IE. #1 I have a folder full of .URL files. These were made when I saved Bookmarks in IE or when I was at a site and dragged the icon in the address bar out onto the desktop. I want to be able to take this folder of .URL files and have it make a nice HTML page with each .URL files being a link. I have one such program, but it gives you no control over the output HTML files and looks very ugly. #2 I want to be able to drag an IE Favorite (and .URL file) into Word and have it be a hyperlink. When I drag URLs into Word, it creates a weird kind of object that it inserts into Word. I want it to simply create a text line in word with the text being the name of the Favorite (and .URL file), and the hyperlink being the URL in that Favorite. I am using Windows XP and Office XP.

Hello again sherpaj, I'm glad I did some deeper digging on this subject and I hope you will be also. You wanted to be able to take a folder of .URL files and have it be made into a HTML page with each .URL file being a link. [ http://www.cyber-matrix.com/bkmkmag.htm ] I too have been searching for a good way to organize my .url files that are just piling up everywhere. I wanted to put them on a webpage also that I can access from anywhere. And that program did the trick. Very cleanly too. Only problem I had so far was it complained about not finding Netscape located in my registry. Which is NOT strange since Netscape is not installed on my laptop. A nice thing about this program is, it effortlessly traversed the subdirectories of the main directory I pointed it to. I accidentally clicked on a higher level directory than I intended and suddenly I had a neatly arranged hierarchy of all links contained beneath. I even found links I had forgotten about. And now they are all tidy in a .htm file. Right after you have clicked on convert Urls to .html, it displays the output in its window. At this point you can either save that as a file or view the source: <DL><p> <DT><H3>()- News</H3> <DT><A HREF="http://www.bbc.co.uk/">BBC Online Homepage - Welcome</A> <DT><A HREF="http://www.businessweek.com/index.html">BusinessWeek Online</A> <DT><A HREF="http://www.theregister.co.uk/">Cannot find server</A> <DT><A HREF="http://www.cnn.com/">CNN Interactive</A> <DT><A HREF="http://www.fortune.com/">Fortune Magazine</A> <DT><A HREF="http://www.latimes.com/">Los Angeles Times -</A> <DT><A HREF="http://www.newscientist.com/">New Scientist.com - The World's No. 1 Science and Technology News Service</A> <DT><A HREF="http://www.wired.com/news/reuters/">News Wires from Wired News</A> <DT><A HREF="http://www.sfgate.com/">SF Gate News and Information for the San Francisco Bay Area</A> <DT><A HREF="http://news.cnet.com/news/0-1002.html">Tech News - CNET.com</A> <DT><A HREF="http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au/">The Australian</A> <DT><A HREF="http://www.theregister.co.uk/">The Register</A> <DT><A HREF="http://www.usatoday.com/">USA TODAY</A> <DT><A HREF="http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/front.htm">washingtonpost.com - News Front</A> <DT><A HREF="http://www.msnbc.com/">Welcome to MSNBC</A> <DT><A HREF="http://www.wired.com/news/">Wired News</A> </DL><p> That is a sample of the source output I received. In addition to the other things that program does, I just dragged a highlighted snippet into MS Word and it became a neatly arranged list of hyperlinks. That is nice... [ http://www.alienintelligence.com/misc_files/News.doc ] [ http://www.alienintelligence.com/misc_files/News.htm ] I hope this program and its features plus the "right click and drag" into MS Word will satisfy your question properly. -=search techniques=- "Internet Explorer" ".url" utility [ ://www.google.com/search?sourceid=navclient&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=%22Internet+Explorer%22+%22%2Eurl%22+utility ] thanks for your continued patronage sherpaj, -AI
