While browsing the Internet I suddenly came across this file on my desktop. I tried finding out what was in the file but found that I did not have permission to open it.

Can anyone help out?

    Like @Artyom answered you dragged and dropped a URL from the Location bar or a link to the desktop. You can just delete that file. – pLumo Nov 6 '17 at 15:10

It's a youtube link. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYEK6xds6eo-3tr4xRdflmQ

You accidentally dragged the address bar on your desktop while browsing the link or a page that has the link, your internet browser created a shortcut to the address.
