How many way can we connect to a shared network folder and assign a drive letter to the connection so that we can access the folder using My Computer? The one that I know is to go to Explore, Tools, and Map Network drive.

You can also do it in a VBS script:

Set objNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
objNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "F:" , "\\server\share"

You can also use group policy "My Documents redirection" as described in this article:

oh you could use the Net use cmd.
on the cmd prompt type net use /help and it would list the complete syntax.
the same command lets u connect /disconnect to shared resources.

Not sure why you want this or what you are actually looking for but... for completeness:

Right click, network neighborhood / network settings and map network drive
Start | run \\servername, right click the share and choose map network drive.

or......  you can do the easiest one of all and right click my computer and choose map network drive, then choose a letter to assign in the drop down box and type the path to the share (ex. \\server\share) or you can browse to it by clicking the browse button.  then hit ok and you're done.
