I was sent  a music file that ends with .url.  When I try to open it I get a message that says it will harm my computer.  I never encountered a url before.  Can someone tell me how to open it in Dropbox

A .url file isn't a music file. It's just a shortcut to a website. If you were expecting a music file then it will either be at the website that the .url file points to, or you'll need to contact the person who sent you the file.

Need more support?
