Opening WEBLOC files

Did your computer fail to open a WEBLOC file? We explain what WEBLOC files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your WEBLOC files.

What is a WEBLOC file?

Files that contain the .webloc file extension are usually Mac OS X website shortcuts. These files are normally created by Apple's Safari Web browser.

A WEBLOC file is created on a user's computer when a user drags the website icon that is located next to the address field in the Safari browser and pulls it onto their computer desktop. The WEBLOC file will then store the address of the specific website and the user can access the site at any time by clicking on the desktop icon.

WEBLOC files are similar to the URL files that are used by the Windows operating system to save URL shortcuts.
