I noticed the past 2 days that when I go a saved internet shortcuts in any of my folders on the desktop and I click on the link it opens as an internet url then after highlighting it then it opens as a webpage. I tried everything in my Brave settings and File Explorer and nothing seems to work. Can you please help me? The problem happens with both Brave and MS Edge on all of my previously saved shortcuts.

Thank you.
