How do I open a link to a document in a shared drive or on my computer?

By default, most web browsers prevent local files from opening due to a link on a website. This is a security measure designed to prevent malicious sites from accessing system file objects. If you allow your browser to open these links, you accept all associated risks.

To be able to open local links from your browser:

  • Click the link you want to open.

  • Internet Explorer

    • Open Internet Explorer’s “Internet Options” menu.

    • Go to the “Security” tab.

    • Uncheck “Enable Protected Mode.”

    • Click “Sites.”

    • Add your organization’s KaiNexus url (it’s something like myorg.kainexus.com) to the list of trusted sites and close this window.

    • Click “Apply” to keep your changes.

    • Go to the “Advanced” tab.

    • Scroll down to the “Security” section and check “Allow active content to run in files on My Computer.”

    • Restart your computer.

    • Click the link you want to open.
