Network drives are mapped under Computer (formerly My Computer on previous Windows editions).
Open the Start Menu and select Computer.
Look under the Computer tab at the top of the window.
Select the Map Network Drive icon to add a new network drive. You can use the drop-down menu to remove an existing network drive.
The pop-up will prompt you to enter a drive letter. This will be used by your computer to identify the drive quickly—like speed dial on a phone.
You can choose any available drive letter from the drop-down list.
Enter the drive path to the network drive. You will need the complete path to map it properly. Be sure to use backslashes
\ when mapping the drive. Here's an example of how the formatting should look:
When mapping the drive, you can choose to reconnect at sign-in. This will keep the drive mapped to your computer. If you restart or log out, it will still be there the next time you log in.
Uncheck this box if you don't want to save the network drive.
When all of the information is entered, click Finish to save the changes and map the network drive to your computer.
If the drive won't map, make sure the path is correct. The formatting must be exact and use backslashes.
Make sure the drive is currently online. You should be able to access the network drive with the same path in the Run window.
You may want to disconnect from the network and reconnect if issues persist. Check out our guide on how to reset your network settings.
