SharePoint Document Library as Drive Letter

​It’s generally better to work through the OneDrive directly but it is nice to have access to your files in a more traditional way while you get used to SharePoint.  If you’ve set up your SharePoint drive as a Favorite already, it’s easy to access.

Another way is to set SharePoint as a drive letter.  Just like you access your current shared network drives, you can give SharePoint a letter and access it through Windows Explorer the same way.

I ended up mapping my top level folder – not Documents – so that I can access the Forms folder, and add templates and other files to my OneDrive.
