Single quote (apostrophe) in hyperlink

We're trying to hyperlink in ArcPro to some documents that have a single quote/apostrophe in the path.  Clicking the link gives the error...

 

 

Any attempt to escape the character doesn't change the error.  I've tried double single quotes and %27 and it still gives the same error.  The fact that %27 gives the same error suggests that it reads the urlencode correctly and makes it a single quote before passing it on to whatever causes this error.  Anyone know how to get around this?  The obvious work around is to rename the folders to not have single quotes in them.  But single quotes are valid characters in normal urls.  So this seems to be a bug in the way Pro handles this.
