You can create a shortcut to a SharePoint site on a network (also called mapping a network drive), you can get to it from Computer or Windows Explorer without having to look for it or type its network address each time.

  • Open Computer by clicking the Start button, and then clicking Computer.

  • Select Map network drive.

What if you experience connection problems?

1. The first thing to ‎is check your username and password.

2. Now that you have checked the password is correct, it may just be a
simply connection error. Try un-selecting ‘remember my password’ and
see if the error occurs. You may also need to try a couple times.

  • Does this allow users to access the document library on their desktops? Saving them from having to access sharepoint online?

  • Correct. All site content would be available once the drive has been mapped.
