You can map network resources to drive desktop and double-click it.  Manual setup, for example, to assign a drive letter to the server with your space (private and public) on Netspace:

  1. Right-click the My Computer icon on your desktop.

  2. Select Map Network Drive from the contextual menu.

  1. On the resulting dialog box, use the menu to select what letter you’d like to assign to the new drive. For the U: you would select U: from the drop down

  1. In the Folder box, type in the address of the server you’d like to access, as well as the share. (For instance, you might enter something like \\netspace\username.$ to map your U: drive to your space on Netspace.)

  2. Click Finish.

  3. Your computer will search for and connect you to the server.

  4. At this point, the Enter Network Password dialog box will probably appear.

  5. In the Connect as: field, type BUCKNELL\username (where “username” is your Bucknell username — the part of your email address before the @ symbol.)

  6. In the Password: box, type in your Domain/File Services password that you normally use to login to Bucknell public machines.

  7. Click OK.

  8. You will now have access to this server, and you can access it as a drive. The icon will be found in My Computer.
