I am using sticky notes provided by windows 7. What i need to do is to add a folder from my hard disk (like c:\temp folder) to a sticky note. when i just put c:\temp folder to sticky note it is not shown as a hyperlink. like when i add \someip


Try typing file://c:\temp - that should give you a link to the file or folder location.

The back-slashes in the file path can be interchanged, so file://c:/temp will also work.

  • file:c:\temp also works. what for folder c:\temp folder (containing space) if if do file:c:\temp folder then it only highlights file:c:\temp not whole line? i tried double quotes but not working. – fhnaseer Feb 2 '12 at 12:22
  • @fhnaseer: Try URL encoding. file://c:/temp%20folder – surfasb Feb 2 '12 at 22:40

    @surfasb is spot on. You'll need to encode the spaces as %20. Some other characters will also need encoding too. You can use online tools like this to encode the folder and file names. – greg84 Feb 3 '12 at 0:17
