I created 3 test links below. The first two are using the links you sent us. The first is a link to an email search. It opens the user's Gmail account. The second is a link to a PDF file that is not hosted online but saved on your computer thus the "file:///C:/Users/Dana/Downloads" part of the link. This is indicating that this file is saved on your computer in your downloads.
The third test link is to an article I found online.
You will need to find the link to where the article is hosted online for this to work.
