Slideshow: Quick networking mapping with PushD and PopD

To disconnect, just select the icon and click OK

When you are done using the drive, you must then return to Windows Explorer, pull down the tools menu and then select the Disconnect network drive command. When you see the Disconnect Network Drive dialog box  just select the drive icon and click OK.

As you can see using Windows Explorer's network drive mapping feature really isn't that complex but it does require a multitude of steps. This is especially apparent when you see how quickly the same operation can be performed using the PushD/PopD commands.
