Best way (in my opinion) for PC. Mentioned by ContImprovement. 1. Create your Note 2. Find your file using any iteration of Win Explorer 3. Right click on the file 4. Click on "Create Shortcut" (near the bottom of menu) 5. If desired : "Rename" shortcut to any meaningful name as you want it to appear in your note 6. Drag & drop newly created shortcut in your note. The resulting fully functional link is a very nice looking 3d shadowed rectangular box containing the Shortcuts name. This sounds like a long drawn out process but it is really very simple, intuitive (after initial conception) and fairly quick to carry out.
