Create a hyperlink library in files
In teams, I'd like to be able to post a list of links that can be accessed right from Teams. At this point, I have to create a Word Doc with hyperlinks on it then upload that to the Files tab. When my team tries to open the links, they have to open it in Sharepoint instead of the link going straight to the web.

I need to create a directory list in Teams for access to files that WILL NOT be synced to any of the Microsoft files systems. If I paste a directory link for a protected network drive or folder, I need it to open the file in the associated Microsoft Program and/or open a Windows Explorer File Folder to that location. I cannot find a feasible way to do this? I've tried "Lists", Wakelet, Wiki, and an internal word file. Non of them will allow for a non-web hyperlink to be selected from the list and open the targeted location/file.

I'm trying to create an easy way that compiles resources and supports to a group of professionals and I'm confused why it's not easy to post links/url's to the teams files. The suggestions on this strand are all work-arounds. This is all very cumbersome and want to make it much simpler to compile resources. I just want to add a folder with a title "Resources" and then have easy links to click on to get to those resources. Please help and respond! Thanks.
Could the list of hyperlinks actually be listed in the Wiki instead. This would remove the need to create a word document, locate the word document and open the word document; and allow you to categorise the links based on a subject.
Additionally, if there are hyperlinks that you want to access within the team you can "add a tab" for a "website" and then paste in the URL. The website will then display within Teams.

Do you have a Wakelet account? Have you tried creating a Collection in a Wakelet and then sharing the URL for the collection. The Collection is dynamic and can be added to at any point in the future.

I'd like this too. I opened up the Files area in Sharepoint and added the hyperlinks this way, but now when people click on the hyperlink in Teams they don't work. It just means that to work reliably with files we have to open them up in Sharepoint all the time.
