    Internet shortcuts have changed


    Hi everyone,

    since I reinstalled/updated my Windows 10, the appearance of my internet shortcuts have changed.

    The left icon is what they used to look like, the right one is a newly created one. The one in the middle was created before the reinstallation.

    How can I get the old appearance back for all my internet shortcuts?

    The right one is actually a PDF, they are to be opened by firefoy by default. I made sure that firefoy is my default browser. All three of the files from above work fine and open in firefox.

    I also made sure, that all the file types are associated with firefox.

    But I can't seem to get .URLs associated. They belong to "Internet Browser" and I cant choose any other software, even though I have installed Windows Edge and Windows Explorer alongside Firefox.

    When I realized the issue, I reinstalled Windows immediately. Nothing changed.
    I tried switching to other web browsers and back. Didn't work either. Similar results for the Internet Explorer.

    I am looking forward to every hint or idea you can give me.
    Thanks a lot.

    Hi,welcome to tenforums. if you really want to make changes there, you could probably do that with this free program - here I started from .URL in the program- this is the option presented, showing part of the command string executed to open a .URL file:
