Open a file on my laptop from a stickie Empty Open a file on my laptop from a stickie

I would like to put a link to a file (pdf) on my laptop into a stickie and have it opened when I click on it. I have used:

C:\Users\****************\Google Drive\...ACAP\...My Units\...Calendars\2021 Academic Calendar.pdf

...in the stickie, but nothing happens when I click on it. Is there something I should do to get this to work? Is this even possible?

Kindest Regards

There is a menu option in the rightclick sticky edit area for inserting a link or you can drag a file into a sticky from explorer .  ( or Ctr+Shift+h )

Hi Sooyke... You're an absolute gem!! Thnx so much for your quick reply... it works really well. Just one further question...

Is it possible to create a name for the dropped file? That is, instead of seeing <<file://C:\Users\**********\Google Drive\...ACAP\...My Units\...Calendars\2021 Academic Calendar.pdf>> can it show: ACAP Calendar 2021 or some other name that I can choose?

Kindest regards

If you use the menu option " insert link " when you rightclick the edit area of a sticky you can enter a name for the link .
Maybe you need version 10 of stickies , i am not sure if earlier versions have this option .

Y O U   A R E   S O O O   G O O D!!!

I found that option in 'Insert Link' but b/c I put the address as <<file://C:....>> it didn't work! Now with your reply, I realised that I didn't need the <<file:....>>.

So, once again thnx so very much!!
