Mapping Drives In XP

By WattyG ·
Whenever I map a network drive in Explorer in Windows XP a new window opens up with the drive contents. This is really annoying and I want to know how to stop this.

Use the net use command to map a drive. At the run box, type in "net use x: \\servername\sharename" where X is the drive letter you want to use. Omit the quotes. You can also create a batch file and put a shortcut to it on the desktop.
