Hyperlink does not open image

Last Modified: 2014-08-13

I have a field that stores a hyperlink that when we had a local server would open the picture from the link in Paint.  We have since moved this server to the cloud and I updated the hyperlink to the new server.

"\\server.company.biz\folder\fileName.jpg".  If I click on the link, nothing happens.  If I paste the link into either my browser or windows explored, it opens perfect.  I went and set the server to a trusted location but that did not help either.
