Mapping Webfiles in Windows 7

Note: If you are off campus while trying to map Webfiles to your computer, you must connect the VPN first. 

  1. Open Windows Explorer and click Map Network Drive in the toolbar.

    map network drive

  2. Setup the folder you want to map by entering the full address. Check both boxes for reconnect at logon and connect using different credentials.

    enter folder name

    • Note: If you are using a University of Richmond computer, you do not need to check the Connect using different credentials option.
  3. At the Windows Security popup, enter in your NetID and password and click OK.

    enter credentials

  4. Your folder should now be mapped as a network drive. To setup a desktop shortcut, right click the location and choose Create Shortcut.
