Default link to user's own local drive - 10-22-2005 , 12:47 PM






I did this on a page years ago, but don't remember the tag that worked.

Can someone refresh my memory on how to creat a link that when clicked
opens a view to the user's own C: root directory in his/her browser window?

Kind of like <a href="file://c:/>link</a>. That's not it, but you see what
I mean.

Thanks.

That assumes the user HAS a C drive, many users do not.

Thanks for the link. I haven't been able to get any of the examples to
work. For example, should this <a href="file://localhost/C|">link</a> work?
It's not working (and I do have a C drive). Obviously I'm doing something
wrong.

Can you tell me the string that would work?

Thanks for your time.

This HTML works on my Win2K machine:

<a href="file:///C:/">Link</a>

netscape used the file:// thing consistently.
<a href="c:\">c drive</a> and <a href=file://c:/>c drive</a> and <a
href=file://c|/>c drive</a>works for ie6 just fine.
