Desktop internet icons will not open Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I can not get internet shortcuts to work from my desktop w/ Windows 7 Pro 32-bit. Old & new do not work. E8 is browser with all updates & have reset from advanced options. Browser opens & just keeps showing connecting & does not seem to time out. I noticed the address bar is blank when Explorer opens after clicking the shortcut. If I open the properties of shortcut, copy the URL & paste, it opens site just fine which means the shortcut is good

  • If this behavior started fairly recently, try using System Restore to go back to a date before it began, see if that fixes the problem.
