I've got 50 http URL links in a text file that I need to copy and paste each of the link to internet explorer or chrome or any other browsers and open each of the links. It takes too much effort to it one by one, any way of quickly copying and pasting all links and opening them in browsers?

I got an idea, it worked for MS Edge (set as default browser).

Open the list in your favorite text editor and choose to replace text.
Replace http with start http. Now resave the file as a batch file, for example openall.bat

Then run the batch file. Here is a quick example of what I did. NOTE: Your system may be set up different. It may instead open 50 different browsers rather than 50 different tabs. Just be forewarned about that.

Easy...

Create an HTML file with those URLs. Open it in a browser, middle click each one. Opens in a new tab.


Open Notepad
Substitute your values for these.
save as an html file
