cross-referencinghyperrefpdf

How can I make a hyperlink to a pdf file located somwhere out of the current directory of .tex file?

For example, my .tex file is located in C:\myWritings and the pdf file to be linked in the tex is located in C:\PDFs.

\href{run:C:/PDFs/example.pdf}{This is descriptive link text}

, you have to use \href instead of \url according to Link to local (PDF) file
