We don't have a common set of drive mappings at our company for certain network shares. Inevitably, someone will create a custom drive mapping to a folder, then they will link to a document under that drive mapping and either embed the link into an email or word document.
Of course, nobody else has this drive mapping on their computer. Is there anyway I can tell my users how to make a proper link to a document which lives out on a fileshare such that, if it's not on one of the standard mapped drives they can obtain the full UNC path to the document? Something easier for them than having to drop to a command prompt, type "net use", copy the UNC path for the drive, then concatenate that onto the rest of the path to the file.
Phew. If such a feature or such a shell extension exists, I would love to know.
OS is Windows XP.
