Unable to access local files from the favorites menu

I tried adding a notepad file from my desktop to my favorites via Favorites->Add other objects->Web address or file. The notepad file got added succesfully to the favorites screen. However on double clicking the file I am getting the below error in the screenshot.

However this was working earlier.

What could possibly be the problem.

Thanks in advance.

    • It's not an error - it seems like it's by design since the browser is being used to display the file. Why not stash it on a server somewhere since on a local pc the file will not be available 24 hours a day since the user will be turning the pc on and off.

      Have you checked the SAP documentation ??

      This states:

      Inserting a Web Address or a File

      1.Choose Favorites Link or file.

      A dialog box appears.

      2.Enter the name and Web address or the file name and choose Continue.

      The Web address must start with http://. For example,

      The file name must have the format: :\ \ . For example, C:\Texts\ SAP.doc. You can use this function only if you can access local files from your Web browser.

    You would be using web address or file to do that.

    I tried when you add it; it doesn't open firstly; but later it starts. for me it always doing the same when I login every time..

    first time wont work; force it to close it & then run again it will work.
