👍

Code for the thumbs-up icon, or in this case, a link to a hitchhiker (who'd show his thumb to signal passing motorists he wants a ride).

{F52C090C-D3BE-48EA-AE49-6BCCF449A561}

Is a random globally unique id, short: GUID

2.718

Mathematical constant e

2

Pronounce as to

Winter Street

Or in swedish: Vintergatan, a name for the Milky Way galaxy

Thus the final answer is

Hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy

Partial solution

👍

is the thumbs up icon.

{F52C090C-D3BE-48EA-AE49-6BCCF449A561}

can be split in parts of 4 which refer to (chinese ?) symbols combined with button U (some examples)
- f52c
- 090c
- d3be
- 48ea

2.718

might refer to the base of natural logarithms also called e

    $\begingroup$ Good work; though {F52C090C-D3BE-48EA-AE49-6BCCF449A561} has a different purpose here. $\endgroup$
