Hello,

Unsure if this is even possible but can you have a link, a button, or something else that a user can click inside an Adobe PDF that takes you to a specific folder on your network?

Example

Open PDF - Click a Button on a page called Open Folder, and File Navigator opens to that specific folder

Thank you!

Yes indeed you can!  You need to insert a hyperlink as usual, but specify, for example, file:///C:/ to open the C drive.

I tried this by creating a hyperlink in a word document with the same URL, then saving it as a PDF.

HTH!

Hi Mrwad99,

How would one go about applying this to a network location instead of the local hard drive?

In exactly the same manner.  The key point is that you prefix with file:///, so you could have file:///\\your\network\drive\here for example.

HTH!
