    Odd question? Is it possible to link files to wordpad or notepad?

    Okay here's what I'm trying to do but don't know how or even if its possible.

    I want to make my files for movies more unique. What I'm trying to do is place a image of the show I want and then name the file as "Season 1" and then in order place a link from the file.

    It would look like this "The Originals Season 1" and then the episode would look like this. "Pilot" which hopefully could be a colored like to click that would open the file in vlc media player. And under the link would be a description of the episode. I would put a link to each episode with a description in each file.

    So I would open notepad or wordpad or which ever and then I would place a link to the first episode on to the last and I would also copy and paste a description from each episode online into the pad as well. And each one would be saved in a new folder called "TV Shows" and in the folder there would be a pad document with all the episodes. That way everything is together. I know I can already do al this with plex but I would prefer to have it set up my way on my own personal pc rather then having it online. And needing to worry about always having a internet connection. After all I'm also planning on doing the same with my laptop but can't always have internet on it.

    So if this is possible please let me know how to place a link for a file into a pad and if its also possible to click the link and open the file from the pad.

    Thank you.

    In WordPad you can insert links as icons.

    Click on "Insert object", select "Create from file", browse to your file and then select "Link" and "Display as Icon".

    Then when you double click on the icon in your document the associated file will open in your default media player so if you make VLC the default to open .mkv or .mp4 etc it will use that.

    You can move these icons around and type text but it isn't very pretty...

    Thank you for the helpful answer. And you are rite its not to pretty. I think I might use plex after all. If I can figure out how to tinker with it. Or a different kind of library program.
