    Using OneNote 2010 on Win8.1 laptop: file name error

    On one of my laptops I'm having a problem opening links to pages.

    It states: "...Is not valid. File names cannot contain any of the following characters: ? * \ / : < > | " "

    Using Thunderbird I send links to my pages to other accounts. All computers can open these links apart from one.

    I use network based workbooks that all PCs can access at the same time - all from one PC acting as a server.

    Using w8.1 and OneNote 2010

    That's odd, I'm using I.E.11 and OneNote 2013 and am not experiencing any problems what so ever.
    Thanks John

    haha. Well I'd hope this laptop was the same. Can't figure out this problem.

    My OneNote 2013 defaults to saving in the Documents\OneNote Notebooks Folder. The path doesn't contain any forward slashes /, only back slashes \, pretty much a standard in path statements for many years. It's not unusual for Windows to identify a problem with a path statement but not get it right as to where or what the actual problem is.

    Thanks for the input. I think it must be to do with the process of how it is choosing to open these network links - either in its registry or something to do with browser settings, possibly.

    Anyone one else got any pointers?

    Really struggling to fix this problem

    Is it possible that the link is being broken or wrapped on the receiving PC?

    Can you navigate to and open the notebook using the open dialog?
