It would be nice if.............. RRS feed

  • Question


    I just installed an add-in called advanced admin console and find it very usable and a welcome addition to the whs console, There is a provision to add other shortcuts to those installed by default. The shortcut I would like I cant seem to find maybe someone here can help. It would be a shortcut to" Map Network Drives", which is found under the tools menu at the top of most explorer pages.I cant seem to figure out how to shortcut to this so that I can add it to this new plugin.

  • Map Network Drive... is a menu item in Windows Explorer, so you won't be able to create a shortcut to it. You can create a shortcut which performs a specific mapping, however. It could simply be a link to e.g. \\server\photos, or it could force the mapping of a drive letter to a share:

    net use * \\server\photos

    would map your next available drive letter to the \\server\photos share. Substituting "L:" would force the mapping of your L: drive (assuming it wasn't already allocated).
