Files, Links, & Scripts

Quickly open links and files or run scripts with your mouse.

What is it

Warp supports opening files, folders, and URL links that are within Blocks. Multiple URL protocols are supported e.g. https, ftp, file, etc. Warp opens web links directly in your default browser.

Warp can also open Markdown files directly. Learn more about viewing Markdown files.


Warp can open .command and Unix Executable files from the finder directly.

How to access it

  1. After hovering over a link, open it directly by holding down CMD while clicking it.

  2. Clicking a link normally will open a clickable tooltip that says “Open File/Folder/Link”.

  3. Right-clicking a link will open a context menu that supports copying the absolute file path or URL to the clipboard.

Configure the default editor to open files by navigating to Settings > Features > Choose an editor to open file links.

  • You can also Drag and drop a folder or file onto the Warp dock icon to open a new tab in this directory.

  • You can also right-click on a folder or file in Finder, then select Services, and "Open new Warp Tab | Window here".


  1. Find a .command or Shell script you'd like to open in Finder.

  2. Right-click and open the script with Warp.

Make sure the file has the appropriate executable permissions before you can run it in Warp. (e.g. chmod +x script.command)

How it works

Warp parses relative and absolute file paths. Warp also tries to capture line and column numbers attached to the file path, supported formats include:

  • file_name:line_num

  • file_name:line_num:column_num

  • file_name[line_num, column_num]

  • file_name(line_num, column_num)

  • file_name, line: line_num, column: column_num

  • file_name, line: line_num, in
