    I have Windows Vista Home edition SP2… and I tried to change the program to
    open file .url "Internet Shortcut" with Safari, I went to Start > Control
    Panel > Default Programs > Associate a file type or protocol with a program.

    The 'Associate a file type or protocol with a program' dialog box is
    displayed.
    Under the 'Extensions' heading, select '.url' and click the 'Change
    program…' button.

    The 'Open With' dialog box is displayed.
    But, Safari does not appear in the list of 'Recommended Programs', then
    click the 'Browse…' button.
    A second 'Open With' dialog box is displayed, - Program Files - Safari -
    Safari.exe - Click 'Open' to open .url files with Safari, but Safari does not
    appear - continue IExplorer -

    Safari is my default browser, but IExplorer has 3 out of 9 defaults (.mht,
    ..mhtml, .url) and Safari has 8 out of 9 defaults (except .url)

    Why Safari set as Default Browser does not open .url files (Internet
    Shortcut) ???

    Any help will be appreciate. Thanks.
