View and map network resources faster

Learn a quicker way to map and niew resources in a Windows network.

Do you want to know how to view or map a shared network resource faster? Do you hate going through the Network Neighborhood or Windows Explore, because it's hard to find the computer name that you are looking for? If you already know the computer name and you know right where you want to go, here is a faster solution for viewing or mapping a shared network resource.

  1. From the Start Menu, select Run.


  2. In the Run dialog window, specify the Universal Naming Convention of the computer that you want to browse and click the OK button.


  3. A new window will pop up that will show the shared network resource of that particular computer.


  4. You can now map a shared folder or use a shared network printer.
