how to create an internet shortcut instead of a pinned site shortcut?

I often save links to windows explorer by drag and drop from the address box in a browser to windows explorer. When I do this in IE9 beta, a pinned site shortcut (.website file) is created instead of an internet shortcut (.url file). Is there a way to create a .url file by drag and drop from the address box in IE9 beta?

You can drag and drop an internet shortcut as before by holding the shift key down while you drag the link (drag using the icon to the left of the url in the address bar).
