Hi,

I can create a network location to my sharepoint instance but how can I create a network location so that the user doesn't have to navigate through tons of folders.  For example, I have a document library called:

Public on the main site and in there is a user folder.  I would liek kto create the network share sot hat it goes straight to that location so they can save in there.

Any help is appreciated!

So you don't see a button in the ribbon, under the Library tab, that says "Open with Explorer"??  It's in the Connect & Export section.

Ok, just looking in wrong place.  So it shows in explorer as:

http://url:8020 > Public so would it be http://url:8020/public

?  And from this could I do:  http://url:8020/public/user where user is a folder in the library

Do you have the web client service running on your machine?  

It should be \\url:8020\public
