# Open a link directly with default app

Hi,

I use a lot ![](media/file.extension) in TA notes.

When I click on the link, it opens a folder, then I have to double-click on the file to open it, and then I close the folder... Lot of actions to just open the file with the default app.

I understand that it could be useful to be able to open the folder. Maybe use a key-modifier option to let the user the choice to either open the folder or directly the file?

• We plan to make images and other file "attachments" work more conveniently, and I'll put your idea to use modifiers to change the behavior to our list of considerations!
