Relative path

Updated: 10/17/2017 by Computer Hope

Alternatively referred to as a partial path or non absolute path, a relative path is only a portion of the full path. A relative path is often used in creating a web page; for example, instead of specifying "https://www.computerhope.com/index.htm" we could only specify "index.htm" if the page linking to the index.htm is in the same directory.
