Can not navigate to file link

filelink.png

I'm tyring to use a file link as described here: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/Link-to-Local-file-rather-than-a-WEB-URL/td-p/176749. As can be seen in the picture, I'm unable to copy the link in order to open it in my browser nor can I left click it to open it. How can I fix this?

Re: Can not navigate to file link

Hi @Anonymous,

 

I can't tell from the screenshot - are you trying to open the link in Power BI Desktop or in the Power BI Service?

 

As noted in the linked thread,

"This feature isn't supported in Power BI desktop by far. Maybe it will be in the future. Here is cited from official blog: If you want to use file URLs, there are some limitations. They will not open in the Power BI Desktop, only in web browsers."

This is in the PowerBI Service.

Hi @Anonymous,

 

This feature doesn't work either on my environment. I have reported this problem internally.
