Links with spaces in folder name...
Sometimes I have in a text file, a link to a file on my computer with spaces in the folder or file name, like this:
file:///G:/travel in 2023/TRIP TO BLACK STOOL.NPS
Even with “file:///G:/travel in 2023/TRIP TO BLACK STOOL.NPS”, notepad++ does not see it as a link.
Notepad works fine if the link has no spaces.
Many thanks again!
URIs with spaces in them are supposed to be URL-encoded. Try
See the Wikipedia article on File URI Scheme .
Notepad++ correctly recognizes the following standards-compliant file-URI as a link:
Once again, this is actually a URI question, not anything that’s Notepad++ specific.
