Entry shows a step by step on How to Map a Network Drive in Windows Vista. Keep in mind I will assume that you have already shared a directory on Office 1. If you do not know how to do this please go to this blog - How to Share a Directory on a Network in Windows Vista & XP.

Ok here is how I did it, it's rather easy. You will need two PC's. Let's call them Office 1 and Office 2. You want to map a network drive on your Office 2 PC. Below is a step by step on how to do it.

How to Map a Network Drive in Windows Vista


  1. Have both PC's on, go to the Office 2 computer and do the following.
  2. Go to Start
  3. Control Panel
  4. Network and Internet
  5. Network and Sharing Center
  6. Turn ON Public Folder Sharing
  7. Go to Start > Computer
  8. In the Header go to Map Network Drive
  9. Choose a Letter Drive
  10. Click Browse
  11. Choose the PC that you are sharing the directory
  12. Click ok


Now you can access all your files from Office 1 on your Office 2 computer. You will notice this in your My Computer window. If you have any questions post them here. I will be emailed that you have commented.
