Map A Network Drive In Windows XP

If you have more than one computer, you can share files across your home network. Shared folders from other computers appear in Windows Explorer just as if they were on the computer you're using.

Create a connection to the shared folder on the computer that you want to use to open the files. You can connect to the shared folder in two ways:

• You can directly open the shared folder. This is the quickest way to get to your shared files.
— or —
• You can map a drive letter to the shared folder. This way makes it easier to open the folder in the future.

Open a shared folder:

1. On your desktop--> double-click My Network Places.

Note:  If My Network Places is not on your desktop--> click Start--> and then click My Network Places on the Start menu.

2. In My Network Places--> double-click the folder you want to open.

3. You'll see your files in the folder.

Map a drive to a shared folder:

1. Click Start--> and then click My Documents.

2. Click the Tools menu--> and then click Map Network Drive.

3. In the Map Network Drive dialog box--> click Browse.

4. In the Browse For Folder dialog box--> click the folder you want to connect to--> and then click OK.

5. In the Map Network Drive dialog box--> make a note of the drive letter shown--> and then click Finish.

6. If prompted--> type your user name and password--> and then click OK.

Microsoft Windows XP will open a folder to your shared files. In the future, you can open the shared folder from My Computer by clicking the appropriate drive letter.
