How to link documents on shared folder on a server with power bi report

I have a virtual machine on which power bi desktop is installed. I want the power bi report made here to have a button/ link, upon clicking which it should redirect me to pick files placed in this folder.


I know, we can give a web link of power bi service or any other website but can this pick up files from local folder as well?


Is there any way to do this?
