Adding a hyperlink is taking time

Hello experts,

My users are having issue.

They are located in a remote branch and when they are sending an email and they try to hyperlink a file located in a shared folder in the main branch in their outlook it takes them 6 min to get the hyperlink.

How are they creating hyperlink? If they browse and select file, then it will take time, else if they create link only by copying path, it should be very quick

There is a great little utility called Clipname that I use all the time.  I have installed it on all our servers.

Another thought are users facing slowness in opening and navigation to file due being in shared drive?

ClipName looks cool -- and if I didn't know about Everything, I'd probably install it.  

Everything is an essential free tool in my kit
 
Download Everything
http://www.voidtools.com/download.php
 
Everything is amazingly fast for finding files once it builds the initial database.  In fact, I can usually find a file faster with Everything than I can navigating to where it is when I know the exact location.   So, for instance, if you are looking for a  xlsx file with daily and sales in the name, you can type:
xlsx daily sales
 
as you type, separate things with spaces.  You can also use wildcards.
 
To Copy Path to Clipboard, or the Copy Full Name to Clipboard, right-click the file in Everything, and choose from the shortcut menu to copy and then paste wherever you like.  Double-click on a file to open it, or right-click and Open With.  You can also drag files, or ctrl-drag (to make a copy) from Everything to a folder.
 
Everything is in the system tray when it is running (it loads automatically, which is one of the few things I let do that).
 
I make a hotkey of Ctrl-Alt-Shift-\  to launch Everything anytime -- and I use it several times a day.
Tools, Options, Keyboard

When Everything installs, check box for context-senstive menus so you can right-click on a folder in Windows Explorer or My Computer and limit Everything to searching below a folder.

Thanks Crystal, I will look into everything.  I have used Clipname for years but this sounds like great alternative.
