I added a link to a Links Web Part in the format of file://prod.site.net/shareFolderName/Folder
There was no problem when adding the link - however, when I click on the link it does nothing. I have tried both Chrome and IE. When I Start > Run > and type that in it does open up the file.
I even tried something simpler like file://c:/ and this also does not work.
Question is, how can I get sharepoint Links web part to add a link to folder on a shared drive? If it is not possible is there a different way to do this?
