Open windows explorer in certain folder

Problem: I click on the internal link my collogue sends eg. “”, see the path and then go to my TotalCommander, Windows Explorer or whatever anybody uses to the fail path and then the work can start.

Ideal: I click on the internal link and then Chrome Extension or not sure how will understand that it’s a NextCloud internal URL and will open D:\nextcloud\path (must enter to some settings my path) in Windows Explorer or better TotalCommander.

Also possible solution: NextCloud app that has for example in the dropdown menu link to open local path.

Did some reasearch and found this Chrome extension Local Explorer - File Manager on web browser - Chrome Web Store that opens folder URL in my Windows Explorer. Tested, works nice. Created HTML file with content <a href="file://///D:\crewnew\__Projects\_Estimations">Open folder</a> and clicking it opened the location in explorer. Nice.

Now how to have from the link somewhere: <a href="file://///D:\crewnew\__Projects\_Estimations">Open folder</a>

Well, as I don’t know how to code NextCloud plugins I was thinking maybe someone here finds it useful and can do it or alternately maybe extend our Chrome extension: GitHub - crewnew/cn-chrome that if you go to LinkedIn or some other sites like etc. then it will check via GraphQL our database and see if the person is in our database and if is then display such a thing:

It could also check if the URL is NextCloud URL then generate into that bottom left box the link to open the local path.

It sounds like you are trying to do something strange… and you did not provide any information at all about your setup.

Pretty logical stuff actually: I have some NextCloud folder open in my browser and I want one-click open that folder now in my hard drive to then double-click on sime file and open it with associated app in my Windows.

I also think this would be one of the best usability features for Nextcloud. Currently, I click several times a day on an internal link and work my way manually towards the file in windows explorer. This such a waste of time.
