    Can you confirm the link itself is correct?
    eg, the top link won't work because the www can't be resolved... the bottom link will be sent to my default browser (edge for now) and my website opens.
    Screenshot (99).
    its not uncommon for a work site to block websites but I assume you are at your own place so copy and paste the http address in question into a browser as a test to see if the site is up and this is just an excel problem or perhaps the website is down for whatever reasion.

    The next step is to check 'trust' settings but to be clear, Excel works in WX for links

    You are doing four no-nos here:
    • The c drive is a dangerous place to allow scripts to run because that’s where the operating system is,
    • The user drives have extra security because they hold private files… even if this is your account there is still the option that this excel could be run by a different user or even a guest,
    • The picture folder have added security options because they can be shared (or not) over a homegroup… in fact I suspect this one is your current issue,
    • And last one is that location is un-trusted

    I recommend
    ;

    Make a new folder somewhere off the c drive and share it eg, F:\pictures\base photos (shared as \\base photos)
    Screenshot (123).
    Add the folder to the trusted locations list by its full path… that’s file>options> trust center>trusted locations and as f:\ not as the share name
    Screenshot (110).

    Put a copy of whatever the files are into this location and point your excel script at it... post back if your firewalls / anti-virus software still jacks up
