Default Relative path for hyperlinks

I read through the relative hyperlinks sticky, but didn't quite understand it... I have training folder that I maintain on the company network which synchronizes with others' computers. There are some documents that contain hyperlinks that are broken when the files are synchronized with the other computers. I want to make the hyperlinks relative but don't understand how to do so.

Example:
Document containing hyperlinks is in this folder:
C:\Users\bill-\Documents\04_Femto Training\06_Training\_Training Documents\06_Z8 Technical Basic

Hyperlink goes to:
C:\Users\bill-\Documents\04_Femto Training\06_Training\_Training Documents\_Instructor Supplementary Material\Technical\Introduction to Ziemer Technology V_2.0.pptx

How is this done...? Thanks in avance.

What you need to change depends on what the relative path is between the files. Your post doesn't clearly indicate what that might be.
