Using Launch Function reaching file on Azure File Storage

Hello all,


In one of my Power Apps, I try to launch files stored on our Azure File Storage. Unfortunetaly, I have no luck in doing it. When tapping a button with a formula like this: Launch("\\\folder\file.pdf"), simply nothing happens when using the W10 app. When using the browser, I'm getting page from the screenshot below. I'm sure file storage is correctly configured on our PC's, when pasting the URL's manually in the file explorer, the files just open. While when I try to launch a file on our on-prem server, like this: Launch("\\ourserver\folder\file.pdf") it works perfectly.




Any suggestions?
