Bug Description

When syncronizing some hyperlinks from e.g. Windows to iPhone, they are opened on U1 Files as somekind of embeded text, which can only be viewed in U1 window on iPhone, but not actually used / opened in web browser.

Here you are!
Last screen-shot shows a window in which nothing can be opened further;
only delete button at the bottom is in function.
Can you do something with the way this file is opened? If it can be opened
as text, that would be much of a help - can do copy-paste into Opera
address bar..
Thanks!

David

So, what kind of files are these, actually? Text files with the name of the web page and whose contents are the URL? If these are Windows-specific filetypes, we may not be able to do much with them.

It's an Internet Shortcut (.URL); you can find attached an example.
So, you can't even make an "download" function, beside "view" option? In
such manner I could use e.g. FileBrowser to open it.

Thanks & best regards,
David
