    Can you hyperlink to Windows Explorer

      Is it possible in Adobe Acrobat to create a hyperlink which opens Windows Explorer, therefore allowing people to choose a file to open in the standard way?

          Do you mean to ask this in a Director newsgroup?

          Have you seen the help for Acrobat?

          From the help from Acrobat V.5:

          "Converting Microsoft Office application files (Windows)
          The default Acrobat installation in Windows includes a macro—Adobe PDFMaker
          5.0—
          that allows you to create Adobe PDF files quickly and easily from within
          Microsoft Office
          applications. PDFMaker works with Microsoft Word 97, Word 2000, Excel 97,
          Excel 2000,
          PowerPoint 97, and PowerPoint 2000 and is installed automatically if you
          have the
          Microsoft Office application on your system.
          By default Adobe PDF files created with PDFMaker generate tagged PDF and
          preserve
          hyperlinks, styles, and bookmarks present in the source document."

            I hadn't realised I was in the wrong newsgroup, will find the correct one. I know how to hyperlink to files and web pages etc but just cannot see whether, and if so where, you can get the links to open Windows Explorer.
