I have a list of links on a SharePoint 2010 site. The links that go to a network browser do not work when Chrome is the browser. I've seen a few articles that say some actions can't be done from Chrome, specifically open Excel. Are links to folders also unable to be opened using Chrome?
ActiveX controls are a security risk.
But there is a chrome extension that will approximate what you are trying to do: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/enable-local-file-links/nikfmfgobenbhmocjaaboihbeocackld?hl=en
