Hello Kurtis,

I've just raised a similar suggestion for Confluence here:

Other than that, I know it's possible to link specific files using the file:/// protocol, but it might not work depending on the O.S and the browser.


I hope it helps!

You can use the file:/// protocol, but it will only work natively for IE. For Chrome or Firefox you will need an extension that will expose the file:/// protocol. For Firefox you can use the NoScript add-on to enable local links. For Chrome you can use the LocalLinks extension.
