- open a directory in dired mode
- put the cursor on the file you want to link to
- call `org-store-link' (which may be bound to `C-c l')

The link is now stored. You can insert in an org file it with
`org-insert-link' (often bound to `C-c C-l').

Alternatively, you can use an org-capture template that captures a link
to the current context, and use it in dired mode.

Best,

Alan
