Does Confluence support File/Windows Explorer

Does Confluence support links to local/shared directories using File/Windows Explorer (Windows 10) for display/navigation?  This is a common Wiki function that works with other Wikis but apparently not with Confluence.  Our Confluence IT help desk indicated Confluence does not support File/Windows Explorer.  Hard to believe and very disappointing!!!

This is typically a browser issue and not Confluence. If you can navigate to the URL with Chrome or Firefox, then you at least have a valid URL. THen you  have to change the browser's configuration to allow local links.

Hi @Robert Kamiak Welcome to the Atlassian Community! You can also explore WebDav client to work with confluence pages.

WebDAV allows users to access Confluence content via a WebDAV client, such as 'My Network Places' in Microsoft Windows. Provided that the user has permission, they will be able to read and write to spaces, pages and attachments in Confluence. For example, if you need to delete a lot of pages you can bulk delete them in your local file manager (like Finder or Explorer), rather than one by one in your browser.
