Q: An Apple/Mac user sent me a ".webloc" file -- what do i do with it?
Q: How do i open a .webloc internet shortcut in Windows?
WEBLOC is short for "web location". It's the Mac equivalent of a .URL file or "Internet Shortcut".
Update - Feb 18 2011: WebLoc Translator v2.0 released
- If the .webloc is in binary format (common with older Mac web browsers), your best bet is to find an "online webloc converter".
- But if the .webloc is in plist format (common with newer Mac web browsers), Windows can open it automatically, once you install our simple WebLoc Translator:
- Reduced size and increased speed - a lot.
- Improved installer compatibility with Windows Vista/7.
- Added un-installer to Windows Control Panel.
- Translator now displays a message when an error occurs.
