Question

Hyperlinking Microsoft Word to a Microsoft Word new Folder

I am trying to hyperlink a word in a Microsoft Word.doc to a word in a Microsoft Word.doc within a different folder on my computer but, I keep getting the message
“This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator”.
What am I trying to do:
I have created a folder called Training
Inside is a Microsoft Word document called Contents. This lists all the different titles making up the package
In addition to the Microsoft Word.doc called Contents is a folder called Package. Within this folder (Package) are 21 other folders each one appertaining to a content identified in the Microsoft Word.doc called Contents.
Within each of the 21 folders is a Microsoft Word.doc which gives a very short description of what the content is about. Plus 3 separate folders – Basic, Intermediate, Advanced, which go into the body of the work.
What I want to do is link a word in the Microsoft Word.doc called Contents to a word within the Microsoft Word.doc within a folder connected to that word.
Example
Within the Microsoft Word.doc called Contents the word CAMERA is written
Within the folder called Package is a folder called Camera within this folder is a Microsoft Word document that states that Cameras come in various forms.
I would like to link the word CAMERA to the sentence (or a word within the sentence) Cameras come in various forms.
The idea being once there, you then click on and open up a folder (basic, Intermediate, Advanced) according to your requirements / level of expertise.

My Software
OS Windows 10 64bit
Microsoft Office University 2010
I have trawled the internet, Microsoft Help and they keep talking about Outlook, Explorer etc.
Some have suggested somethings that do not mention any of these but that has not helped as they often refer to (and screen shots) files / drop down boxes that do not correspond to my setup.

Answer
I will not enter into a debate.

But I recall this does happen and I defer to Microsoft support. Which will cost you.

However just do this the old fashioned way with the link to a document in the same folder.

No debate

Your answer gave some information but only answered that it could be done.
There is no need to contact Microsoft support as the answer is very simple and I eventually tracked it down via YouTube. It just needed editing 5 values in the registry. Took less than a minute to do and now all is working as planned.

Always share your finds

And mark your solution as the answer. If you had to tinker with the registry that's a bad thing since this document, what will happen on a PC that didn't have this fix?
