Mapping a drive

by Alpha-Male In reply to Mapping a drive

Click Tools-->Map Network Drive on the My Computer menu bar to open the Map Network Drive dialog box.

Click the Drive drop-down list button and select the drive letter you want to assign to the virtual drive containing this network folder from the menu.

Type the path to the folder on the network drive in the Folder text box or click the Browse button and select the folder directly from the outline of the network drives and folders shown in the Browse For Folder dialog box. Now click OK toclose the Browse For Folder dialog box and return to the Map Network Drive dialog box (where the path to the selected folder now appears).

If you want Windows to recreate this mapped drive designation for the selected folder each time that you start your computer, leave the check mark in the Reconnect at Logon check box.

Click the Finish button in the Map Network Drive dialog box to close it and return to the My Computer window.

The network folder that you mapped now appears at the bottom of the contents area under a new section called "Network Drives" and Windows automatically opens the folder in a separate window.


Hope this helps! Good luck...
