On my webpage, I have placed a link to a local file (e.g.
text.docx on my local HD). I would like to double click on this link, and have a third party software which is installed locally on my PC (e.g. Microsoft Word) open it.
I would like to be able to do this with Firefox and Google Chrome. Obviously, I am a newbie to web programming. Can somebody show me the way? I have looked around and had the impression that I need to write and add an extension, maybe?
Thanks for your time.
