I am writing a procedure telling users how to insert a hyperlink into a Word document. Since our corporate network allows users to create their own drive mappings, not everyone has the same drive letters for the servers.
If I select a path in Windows Explorer, I get the drive letter
If I right-click on the drive letter and select Properties, I get some funky server name that does not include the path where the mapping actually starts.
The only way I can find to get the full path is to access the drive letter information via Map Network Drives, but then I can't see the entire qualified mapping path... and I certainly cannot copy it using XP.
I found a clever setting in Word 2007 Word Options (Customize Quick Access Toolbar) that will put the full path of the currently open Word document into the toolbar. Only problem is I need users to link to ANY file, and not everyone has Word 2007.
What is the EASIEST way to get the FULLY QALIFIED file path out of Windows XP?
