I'm trying to make a file that acts as a shortcut to another file in a SharePoint document library on both the web version and the file explorer.
I have tried the following:
I can create a Windows shortcut (LNK file) in the synced folder (in my file explorer), but it does not work for the web version nor other people’s computers (the path is different).
I have tried to make a URL file (**New** > **Link**). It works in the web version, but not quite well in the file explorer. For example, when I click on a link to a Word document in the file explorer, the file opens in the web version of Word (on SharePoint) instead of the local program.
ASPX "Link to a Document"
I have tried the “Link to a Document” content type (https://www.spguides.com/link-to-a-document-sharepoint-document-library/), but it only works in the web version.
Is there a solution that will work for both the web version and the file explorer?
