Hi all

This works great in browser: file://///mediecenter/medie%20center
If i paste the above link into edge, it will open the path locally.

But if i try to put it on a website using: <p><a href="file://///mediecenter/medie%20center" target="_blank"> mediecenter</a></p>
Then it wont let me click the link.

I kinda just want it to paste "file://///mediecenter/medie%20center" into the adress bar and enter. But something goes wrong when you put file:///// into a href syntax.
What am i missing?

Best regards Mike Kristensen
