helix 10 Posted February 10, 2011 Share Posted February 10, 2011 This question has been raised at least twice recently. Here is how to do it easily:1. Copy the full path of the intended file\folder to the clipboard (pls see below).2. Go to EN, write down a title for your hyperlink.3. Mark the title.4. Ctrl-K, paste the copied file path ON TOP of the "http://" marked text, NOT after it, resulting in a text starting with "C:\Documents\..", (not "http://C\Documents\... "). file:/// etc. is added automatically.5. Click OK, done.[Addendum]Or, if you just want the URL:3. Ctrl-K, paste the path as described above, click OK, done.The trick here is copying the path to the clipboard rather than writing it manually, which could be sometimes quite tiresome.In Win7: In Explorer point to the targeted file, hold the “Shift” key and right click that file icon, press "copy as path".In XP: Unfortunately no such function here. But - download and install a small free utility, ClipboardPath by Stefan Bertels, from http://stefan.bertels.org/en/clipboardpath, (thank you Stefan!). This utility adds the command "Copy Path to Clipboard" to the right-click filename menu. In Explorer right-click the filename, choose this command to copy the file path and proceed to 2,3,4.[Addendum]In XP (more): It is also possible to get the path using Internet Explorer (a longer procedure):- In IE8 press File< Open< Browse. - In the lower file type box (the one with "HTML"), open the dropdown menu and choose "all Files".- Browse to the targeted file and click it twice.- Copy the path from the small window opened at the upper left corner.Good luck to all, helix Link to comment
