Easy Drag and Drop to share Path to files/folders on the Network

By: standss , Jul 24th, 2013

If like us, you find yourself often sharing files/folders with the members of your team while working on projects etc…

here is a simple tip on how you can drag and drop the path to a file/folder on the network rather than having to type or copy & paste the path into the email (or word).

All you have to do is:

  • Create the email.
  • Use Windows Explorer to find the file or folder that you want to share. Make sure that the file or folder is in a location that the other person has access to… normally this would be on a shared or network folder.
  • Right-click on the file/folder and drag it (with the right mouse button still pressed) to the location in the email where you want to insert the path
  • Release the right-click button. You will get the following options:


  • Click Create Hyperlink Here.

This will now insert a clickable link in the email.

I hope you find this tip useful.
