Steps to reproduce


For my application, folder explorer gets opened when user clicks on ‘Open’ link available on one html page. I have used following code to open the folder structure:

<a id=’showFolderStructure’ href=’…//MyFolder//’ />

This works fine in IE, Chrome browser. But for Edge browser it doesnt work.

Please let me know if any solution we have for this. The folder path is dynamic because user can open this HTML file after downloading to their machine. So this path will always be relative.

Thanks in advance.
