open link with file URI

#1 Post by algieba » 02.07.2019, 14:14

Hi

I want to open a link with file URI to Free Commander (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File_URI_scheme).
The link has the form "file://host/folder" but if I paste it in Free Commander nothing happens and he stays in the current folder.

Thank you!

It works currently with
file://///host/folder
file:///\\host\folder

Hi Marek,

thank you for your answer. I tried it, and it works.
For my understanding, can you explain why it is implemented in this way? And why is the "normal" way not possible?

In the past it was not clear defined.
In the next release 800 the "normal" way is possible too.
