I can run this file:// from IE 11 Windows 10. I do not have the IP

Not sure what is specified/run per mention of only "file://" and reference to an IP address.?

I have enable protected mode off in local intranet. The IP shown is
to the i then to the IFS.

The problem is, I seem to be the only person in the office who can
run this. If anybody else clicks the link that brings up the path
shown, it just pops back. Does not give any type of error.

Again, "this" seems ill-defined, and not sure what "pops back" means either.


Other users appear to be setup the same.

A _default_ "drive", perhaps defined in an environment variable, that has been assigned the network drive on your Win system, but the same environment variable is defaulted to refer to a path on the local Win system for the others?

If I send a non-operative user the link without the file://, they can
bring up the text file by clicking on the link. Missing some setting
in IE 11 that makes it work for me and not for others. If I try it in
Chrome, it just pops back, only works in IE 11 for me. Just thought
someone might know what makes file:// work in IE 11.


Of some possible assistance; AFaIK, none mentions an environment variable for a default path:
