All my steam shortcuts turned into .url files and will not launch the games and creating a new shortcut through steam also is not working, i use shortcuts quite frequently and was wondering if there is any solution to this other than going into my 50+ game files to make shortcuts manually.

 

Edit: it wont let me go in and do it manually it gives me an error when i try to use the shortcut i make, my steam is fully up to date i tried restarting steam and my computer neither has worked.

It's normal for steam shortcuts to be url's afaik. You need to have steam open in the background for them to work.

steam is open in the background, this has never happened in the last 6 years of me having steam, and even when steam was closed my short cuts still showed.

Something deregistered the steam: url protocol from your Computer. Try running the Steam installer again and selecting repair.
