Map network drive

By plrod1906 ·
I have an IBM Thinkpad T21, I have a problem when I want to map to a network drive, when I go to tools in Windows Explorer, the Map Network Drive option is not there. What can I do to get that option back in Windows Explorer. Help! Today's is Friday, and I want to go home. Any idea, please email.

right-click on Network Neighborhood (on your desktop)(what version of windows you using?), see if Map Network Drive is offered there...
or run a command prompt (Start/Run/Command) use the net use command to map the drive, eg.
net use m: \\computername\sharename <enter>
hope this helps. have a nice weekend.

Although I can connect to the network drive to net use; the option of "Map network drive" is not available under tools. Thanks I think it is a registry problem

Hi ya,

Hope this catches you on time to end your work week on an up note.

Go to the Windows Explorer.
Select "View" from the toolbar
Select "Toolbar" and "Customize..."
Under the "Available Toolbar Buttons" options select "Map Drive"
Click-on "Add"
Click-on "Close"
All done. :~)

**You can tweak your toolbar almost to your hearts content within that customize box. Have fun!

Sincerely,
EmeraldCity Admin.
