I have a richtextbox with detecturl true.

I want to add file link to that richtextbox, this is no problem aslong as the filename or directory name doesn't include spaces

does anybody know if it is possible to do this if the name does include spaces

Arif_eqbal, You are right. I just replaced the space with another character and then replaced it back when I call the e.linktext, like

Private Sub MenuItem1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MenuItem1.Click
        OFD1.ShowDialog()
        RichTextBox1.AppendText(OFD1.FileName.Replace(" ", "%"))
    End Sub

Private Sub RichTextBox1_LinkClicked(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.LinkClickedEventArgs) Handles RichTextBox1.LinkClicked
        System.Diagnostics.Process.Start(e.LinkText.Replace("%", " "))
    End Sub
