Inserting a Link in a Contact

In an Outlook contact record, how can I insert a link that points to a folder on my hard disk?

To insert the link, use the same file:// URL syntax that you'd use in a Web page. If the path contains spaces, add angle brackets (<>) before and after the path, as in the following example:

<file://c:\data\my contact data\>
