In outlook, I used to be able to type:
And by adding the < and > it'd automatically turn the whole thing into a link. Otherwise it'd just create a link to "Z:\Location". But now it doesn't even turn it into a link at all either typing it normally or with the <>. The closest thing I've found is ctrl+k brings up the URL dialog, but I'd prefer a way that doesn't involve a dialog.
I double checked my
File->Options->Mail->Compose Message->Editor Options->Autocorrect Options->Autoformat-> Replace... Internet and network paths with hyperlinks
is correctly checked. URLs like https://www.google.com do get replaced, but not network locations. Any ideas how to get it to replace network locations with URLs?
