SharePoint Online search has a bug where it downloads ".url" files if you Search the Site. But if you Search Document Library, then click on a ".url" it will open ".url" inside a new tab.
I want to move my company entirely to SharePoint Online, but this bug will create a ton of user error! Now it's advised we do not upgrade.
Why do site vs document library “.url” download versus open in new tab? SharePoint site search vs Documents library search respond differently when you click a ".url" file. How can they all behave the same as Documents library search?
