Turn On Network Discovery

If you want to map a network drive on your Windows 10 PC, you’ll need to enable network discovery first. To do so, open Control Panel and then click “View Network Status and Tasks” under the Network and Internet group.

Click View Network Status and Tasks.

Next, click “Change Advanced Sharing Settings” in the left-hand pane.

Click Change Advanced Sharing Settings.

On the next screen, click the bubble next to “Turn on Network Discovery” to select it.

Click Turn On Network Discover.

Click “Save Changes” and then network discovery will be enabled.

Map a Network Drive

With network discovery turned on, you can now map a network drive. First, open File Explorer and then click “This PC” in the left-hand pane.

Click This PC.

Next, click “Map Network Drive” in the Network group of the Computer tab.

Click Map Network Drive.

The Map Network Drive window will appear. In the text box next to “Drive,” select the drive letter that you’d like to use. You can use any letter that’s not currently used on your device. Type the folder or computer path in the “Folder” text box, or click “Browse” and choose the device from the pop-up that appears. You can also select “Reconnect at Sign-in” if you’d like to connect each time you log in to your device.

Select the Drive letter and folder.

Once you’ve set that up, click “Finish” and the network drive will be mapped on your device.
