Windows 7: How to show the full path of the shared folders?

How to show the full path of the shared folders?

How to show the full path of the shared folders?

For example, I have shared the h folder which is stored on the D drive of the P1 Computer. What I wanted is to show the full path of the shared folder such that it (shared folder) appears as (screenshot is attached):

\\P1\Local Disk (D\h

How might this be accomplished?


Thank you

Best

Jamal

Hi Jamal,

You have created a few Threads, are these all work-related questions or for personal use?

To answer your question, you may create a Mapped Network Drive and create a shortcut on your desktop, this way you'll be able to see the path of your shared resource.

Thank you 2xg for the help,

Sorry to post a few threads. They are quite related but with different core issue in each

What I wanted here is to have the path without the need to do the mapping

Is that still possible?

The first image you attached... See that square you made around Network > P1 > h ?
Click next to it, like this:



Is that what you wanted?

Not sure if this is what you wanted but you can type "net share" into a command prompt and that will list the shared folders and paths.

Thank you texhnologic and Danny for the answer,

I got a help from the forum and sounds that the only way to see the FULL path of the shared folder is from the management (attached)
