I am running Raspbian on a RaspPi2 B. I can access my network computers from Raspbian through the File Manager. If I click on a file from a network Windows PC shared folder to open on the Pi, the correct application opens on the Pi to run that file to open, for example the doc, pdf, txt, file, but the file does not load (the application remains empty - unless - it is an image file such as a jpg and that is viewed on the Pi. If I copy the file through the network and paste it on the Pi, it copies very quickly, and then I can open it on the Pi.
Just curious why? And is there something to configure to not have to copy and paste the file to the Pi and open it on the Pi.
