Ext link to a specific note on windows 11

on windows 11: Is there a way to have an ext link open Joplin and go directly to a specific note.

I see folks have tried joplin://************ but I did not see a working answer for windows.

another approach that many other apps use is a command line argument

for instance I can open up joplin via this link now (I have it in a sticky note)

file://C:\Program Files\Joplin\Joplin.exe

so that Joplin can take a option command to go to a note

file://C:\Program Files\Joplin\Joplin.exe -note xxxxxxxxxxxxx

is there any methods that works.

I am doing this now direct to note, with autohotkey but it messy

For this is the Callback URL / externel Link and it works fine.
You can copy the link joplin://x-callback-url/openNote?id=XXXXXX direct from the note

You can also use

file://C:\Program Files\Joplin\Joplin.exe URL

Where URL is joplin://x-callback-url/openNote?id=123456 (see the reply from JackGruber above)

That works if you are not using HomeNote plugin or the plugin is disabled.
If HomeNote plugin is enabled, the home note opens instead of your desired note..

thanks, works fine. I now use this "stickies" program (on win 11) where I can have any links (to webpages, to applications, to folders, to files and now to notes) quickly. This with Joplin means I am much quicker with my PC based work (I am a scientist).
