how to enter a hyperlink to a folder? [closed]

In Writer I can enter hyperlinks to many elements but I do not find a way to insert a hyperlink to a folder without a workaround.

Current workarounds:

1 - Open MS Outlook (the only MS software left on my PC), new task, create a hyperlink tp the target folder, copy hyperlink, paste special in Writer in html format without comments. Drawbacks of the work around: MSOutlook depending and time consuming.

2 - Create a hyperlink to any document in the target folder, then edit the hyperlink and delete the target file. Drawbacks: very time consuming and if one character to many gets deleted, the whole procedure needs to be done again.

I appreciate a hint on how to create a link to folder without above-mentioned workarounds.

Menu/Insert/Hyperlink in document path field, put the path, that's all, at least for me in Win7x64 LibreOffice 3.6.4

In the path field I only can select a file and from there I have to delete the file name to get the path to the folder. Could you please have a look at the attached picture?!

How can I make an image directly visible in a question or an answer? I appreciate a hint for this as well.

(1) Copy the path from Windows Explorer (Address field) — (2) Right-click on a file in the folder → Properties → copy the path of the folder ...

Thanks this is another possibility to get the path.

I will make a test concerning the image appearance. Please allow me to do this here.

Sorry a question concerning the image. Do I start with the paper clip icon or the little box icon at the top line of an answer? I have no information displayed about the functionalities of these icons and don't want to mess around here.

Thanks again. Highlighting the description was the key. Now you see the picture which I wanted to display above but only the link image description became visible.
