"Sorry, we couldn't open this link. The link address may be invalid, or you may not have permission to open it."

I have never really had a problem with opening Hyperlinks that are linked to my PC. Windows 10 and latest 365 Onenote version.

Now the hyperlink to a word document using my PC gives me this error

Yes the URLs and hyperlinks are correct. 

I even tried by repairing and resetting Onenote

"Sorry, we couldn't open this link. The link address may be invalid, or you may not have permission to open it."

Dear Warren,

I am an independent advisor, and I am trying to help other users in Community with my experience in Microsoft products.

Please specify which OneNote are you using exactly ? is it OneNote for Windows 10 or OneNote 2016 ?

Also please mention if you are using admin account on your device ?

Are all he hyperlinks to a content on your device ? Where they are leading ? To some files ? Have you moved those files or restricted them ?

Please also share the screenshot of that error message. In this thread you will find tips on how to insert screenshot into message https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/for...
Regards,

In OneNote for Windows 10 (the one without a File menu) you cannot open links to local files.

I am using one note Version 16001.11929.20170.0 with my 365 subscription.

I am using the admin account on my desktop computer windows 10

the links are not to content on my device but in other programs - I have not moved them and I also removed the link and added again and it will not work as where last week it did work.  I am using https://form.jotform.com/92334996857173   as one of my links.

Trusted version in Windows 10

I'm having the same problem which first happened yesterday September 5.

This has worked flawlessly in the past and it is extremely annoying. One of the primary reasons for using One Note is to be able to save and 'USE' hyperlinks. 

Please fix this ASAP
