Hi @siva3012 

If you want to use file URLs, there are some limitations. They will not open in the Power BI Desktop, only in web browsers. For most browsers, you will need to right click on the link, copy the link address, and paste the URL in a new tab.

Will Power BI ever fix this inconvenience? Most application allow for hyperlinks to be accessible; I don't see the reason why Power BI would prevent this other than laziness.
