Note: If you are trying to connect to a folder for which you've recently been granted access, you should restart your computer before attempting to connect.


  1. Open the Computer window by choosing Start→Computer.

  2. Click the Map Network Drive button on the toolbar to open the Map Network Drive dialog box.

    To be able to map a network folder to a local drive, the folder must be shared and you must have network permission to access it on the other computer. 

  3. Select an unused drive letter for the network folder in the Drive drop-down list.

  4. In the Folder text box, enter the network share pathname. When you’re done, click OK.

    Here at Commonwealth, the two main sharepoints you'll need to access are \\detcmwfpr011\Groups and \\detcmwfpr012\Agency_Staff_Folders  

  5. Select the Reconnect at Logon check box to tell Windows to map this drive every time you start the computer.

  6. Click the Finish button.
