Access Azure Blob as File system in browser

Is it possible to access Azure Blob in a CDN as a file system in the browser?  If I try to access a file directly from the endpoint I just get a bunch of garbled text.  I am using MS Storage Explorer to upload files but I have a need to go to another computer that does not have MS Storage Explorer and access the files. Example for what I would like to see in the browser.

Yes.

This depends on your Webserver MIME setting for the MIME type of the object/asset/file you're accessing.

2) If I try to access a file directly from the endpoint I just get a bunch of garbled text.

This likely means the MIME type if incorrect for file type.

Note: To debug this further requires a clickable link to access your file.

3) I am using MS Storage Explorer to upload files but I have a need to go to another computer that does not have MS Storage Explorer and access the files.

You're mixing up to many different systems here.

Debugging is  best done incrementally.

Post the clickable link request above in #2 for best assistance.

4) Example for what I would like to see in the browser.

None of you attachments came through + even if they did, only a clickable links mentioned in #2 above, will provide sufficient debugging information.
