How to Create a URL File on Mac?

I know that if I drag a URL from the address bar to the desktop, it creates a .webloc file which when double-clicked will open the default browser and go to that site. I believe, though, that this kind of file works only in the Mac environment. I've seen another type of file, .URL, which does the same thing and which I believe was created in Windows, but also works in the Mac. I'd like to know how to create such files, to send to my unfortunate Windows-using family and friends. Does anyone know how to create a .URL file in the Mac environment?

Hi there, creating a URL file is not as complicated as you imagine, read the following steps to complete that work:

  1. Open TextEdit on your Mac, copy the URL and then paste it on the TextEdit application. 
  2. Set TextEdit to plain text format by pressing the Command + Shift + T keys on your keyboard.
  3. Click File > Save. Save it as a URL file on your macOS computers and then send it to your Windows friends.

Good luck~
