Posted by - NA -, Last modified by Jennifer Millan on 17 September 2013 02:58 PM

When you create a shortcut to a shared folder or computer on a network (also called mapping a network drive), you can get to it from Computer or Windows Explorer without having to look for it or type its network address each time.


1.       Open Computer by clicking the Start button  , and then clicking Computer.

2.       Click Map Network Drive. If you don’t see the Tools menu, press ALT.

3.       In the Drive list, click a drive letter. You can choose any available letter.

4.       In the Folder box, type the path of the folder or computer, or click Browse to find the folder or computer.

To connect every time you log on to your computer, select the Reconnect at logon check box.

5.       Click Finish.


Your computer is now connected, or mapped, to the network drive. If prompted, type your user name and password, and then click OK.
