    A designer just joined my company... so we got him a Mac to draw pictures on

    Turns out that if I email him a load of links to files on the server...

    He can't just click on them, it doesn't work

    What the actual f**k??!!!!

    It is 2017, Steve Jobs has been dead for years, what is going on?

    Google says this rubbish - you shouldn't have to program things to make it work... it should just work surely?

    I don't know, I just hit Ctrl+K in Outlook and click recent files and click on the filepath, to get a hyperlink to a file on the server

    Never really considered what happens, it's just a link to a file on the server innit mate :D

    Rubbishness, should have bought him a Lenovo laptop from 2004, I'm sure that could understand what a filepath is
