I would like to open a local folder with a link with Firefox.
Normally, I put this:

<a href="file://///10.1.206.170/folder/folder 1/">fodler in LAN</a>

This link is work correctly but it's open into firefox and i would like to open as Internet Explorer: into a window.

is it possible?

If you are in HTML you are left with the windows default / current application to deal with it.

IE would not open unless its a default one.

Then throw that as an attachment link from the server. I mean you need to change the header. It would not be done directly in HTML

Also this would not open in notepad but would give the option to the user to open in the default associated application.
