I can put as attachment link to local folder, e.g. D:\Documents\Downloads. Trello shows "LINK" but unfortunately I cannot open the folder by clicking to the LINK. How does it work, please?

The url cannot be a point to a local directory. Trello is a webapp. 

Understand- thank you. Is there any solution to open a link to file or folder using script cooperating with Windows?

Perhaps you can share what you are trying to achieve? Are you trying to get some data to be used in your automation?

I would like to attach link to local file or folder e.g.




and open the file or folder in Windows by clicking to the link.

All should be performed on local machine not in any browser. It should be possible and allowed by Windows- hopefully ... :)

I am aware that you want to attached a local file but what is it that you want to do with it? Are you trying to read off some text to be used within Trello. For example if the content servers to translate A : Apple you can do that translation inside of Trello using Lookup

to attach file or folder. I am not looking for integration of the attached file within Trello. I would like to have local file or local folder as card attachement and have chance to  open the file/folder on local machine. It works with OneDrive as web app- I can open file/folder by clicking on web link attached to card. I would like to have the same operation with local file/folder.
