Is there a way to configure Windows 7 search (on the Start menu -- the "Search Programs and Files" field) to treat files of type ".url" as "Programs"?
The reason I ask -- I want to be able to enter the filename of a ".url" file in that field (without the ".url" extension), and then be able to run it by simply hitting enter, just as this can be done for files of type ".exe", ".lnk", and others. (The behavior for the ".url" file would be to open the target URL in my default web browser.)
Currently, Windows 7 search finds my ".url" file, but it categorizes it as a "File" rather than as a "Program" -- and therefore I have to arrow key down to that search result instead of being able to simply hit Enter.
Update: Currently I have my .url files placed into a directory called C:\utility\shortcuts, which I have manually added to my %PATH% (via the normal means, in System Properties). I could locate them elsewhere if it would make a difference, though.
