The destination path needs to be a location that will be accessible from the deployed final PDF, typically the URL of the file on a live server. Your destination path looks "local," and rather deep.
To use a local path, make it zero levels deep by placing a copy of the target PDF in the same folder where you'll export the PDF containing the hyperlink, and set the destination path to \targetFilename.pdf
I did as you suggested, and the hyperlink still opened to the homepage of Chrome. Is there a setting I need to fix on either the pdf or in the hyperlink in the InDesign file??
I ended figuring out that I needed to update my pdf reader. I read that a lot of people where having problems with their pdf reader not reading hyperlinks correctly when exporting from InDesign to pdf. I figured it was my pdf reader because in InDesign the hyperlinks were linking correctly when I checked where the hyperlinks went.
If you're having the same problem, check what version pdf reader you have. Updating it might be the fix!
