No, it has to be a shortcut.

As far as I am aware mediabrand is right ... it's a shortcut or nothing in a folder, but you can make the shortcut look like a hyper link by opening Windows Explorer, clicking "Tools" ==> "Folder Options".  On the "General" tab, in the "Click items as follows" section select "Single-click to open an item (point to selct)" then ensure that "Underline icon titles consistent with my browser" ==> click [OK]

This setting is system wide, not just for that folder.

Hope this helps
