When I set a hyperlink up on a form, when opened is there a way to not show the address or the navigation tree when windows explorer opens?
- I do not want to display path information, with this know others have the ability to map to these areas.

What is your hyperlink pointing to? A folder on a drive? Or a specific file that you want to open? If you are just opening a file, you can hide the actual hyperlink (don't show it on the form) and just use a button to open the link.

I am pointing to a folder on a drive, trying to provide helpful links. One is the shared drive that we use, however, not everyone is mapped the same. Some users are mapped further down so they do not see certain folders.
This is the root location for our drive
I have setup a folder for all of the users to store information, once mapped they do not see anything higher in the directory then the User_Information folder.
Thank you for you insight

Have you tried playing with the Windows Explorer folder options? There is an option called: "Display the full path in the address bar", which I believe will turn off the full path for you. At this point, I do not know how to programmatically change that option.
