    • On Windows 8, open Windows Explorer, then right-click Network and choose Map Network Drive.
  • Select an unused drive letter.
  • The folder should be filled in as \\win.udel.edu\OUName\ShareName
    • Example:  \\win.udel.edu\css\shares
  • Connect using WIN\UDelNet ID and the associated password.
  • You can now access information on that share via that drive letter.
