  • Hi,

    Based on your description, if you examine the properties of the Internet shortcut file when this problem occurs, the Type of file field indicates that the file type is Internet Shortcut (.url).

    However, the Web Document tab may disappear. Also, on the Details tab, the URL string may disappear.

    Such as the screenshot below:

    If yes, please try the following steps and check the result:

    Make Target Accessible In Internet Shortcut Property Sheet

    If you are opening links from the Desktop shortcuts, delete the old shortcut, create a new one and check; it should work on. But if you’re opening links from favorites, follow this:

    1.Press Windows Key + R combination, type put Regedt32.exe in Run dialog box and hit Enter to open the Registry Editor.

    2.Navigate to the following location:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl

    3. In the left pane of this location, right click on the FeatureControl key and create its subkey named


    by navigating New -> Key.

    Now highlight the new subkey so created, and head on to the right pane of the registry location

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ Software\ Microsoft\ Internet Explorer\ Main\ FeatureControl\ FEATURE_URLFILE_CACHEFLUSH_KB936881

    and create a new DWORD value using Right click -> New -> DWORD Value.

    Name this new DWORD as iexplore.exe. Double click on this newly created to modify its Value data:

    4. In the above shown box, change the Value data to 1. Click OK. You may now close the Registry Editor so far and reboot the machine to get the issue fixed.

    Best Regards,
