When you double-click the shortcut for a Web site in a Documents tool in Microsoft SharePoint Workspace 2010, no Web browser starts. Instead, a Print dialog box pops up.
Consider this scenario:
In your Web browser, you right-click a link, and then click Copy Shortcut.
You open a Groove Documents tool in SharePoint Workspace 2010, move your cursor into the file area for a folder, right-click, and then click Paste. The shortcut appears as a file with the extension .url.
You double-click the shortcut, or right-click the shortcut and then examine the shortcut menu.
When you double-click the shortcut, you see a Print dialog box. When you right-click the shortcut, the only available item is Print.
When you double-click the shortcut, the selected link opens in the Web browser. When you right-click the shortcut, the shortcut menu has an Open item available. This item is set as the default choice.
Groove workspaces do not support opening a URL from the .url document type. If you want to save a Web shortcut in a Groove workspace, do not save it as a document. Instead, paste the shortcut into a Discussion item or a Notepad note.
If you have already pasted the link as a document and need to open it, use one of the following workarounds:
Drag the .url document to a Windows Explorer folder, or to the desktop. Double-click on the copy.
Right-click the .url document, click Send to, and then click Mail Recipient. Open the link from the mail message.
