Hi.I think not in Notepad as that's ASCII (plain text) only.However, if you have MS Office you could do it in Word (or, I suppose, a similar app) as there you can format text as a hyperlink and make the hyperlink point to the relevant document. Not sure about Wordpad (the sort of half-way house that usually ships with Windows)... give it a go.D

You could do it in HTML and the kneeboard then acts like a web browser.

If you make the links to files in your directories it should work.
