That looks like a file on a local Linux machine, not a file on the Internet. Files on the Internet always begin with http:// followed by domainname.com  or .org, etc.

Well, does this work then if you copy and paste it?

It doesn't work for me. I use IOS.

Sandy is correct, that file string will not reach the web. It is not routable on the web without a www.xxx or HTTP somewhere in it. Perhaps in a VPN scenario would work..

Jim,

The first part of the link, "file:///", indicates that the file resides on your computer. That's the reason the link works for you but not for anybody else.

The file is located in a folder (directory) named "Downloads". Which means you likely downloaded it from a website. Do you recall from what webpage you downloaded the file?
