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
