Map Folder to a Drive Letter

WindowsAcross the years I have mapped a folder to a drive letter, often to share a drive with an RDP connection where I didn't want to add the entire c drive, but today, when I needed to do it, I completely forgot how, so I am posting this as an aide-mémoire.

In Windows Explorer, right-click on This PC an select Map network drive...:

Click on Map network drive

Select the Drive letter and enter the folder using the Universal Naming Convention (UNC) path (for example C:\Temp would be \\yourcomputer\c$\temp where the highlighted section is the name of your computer):

What network folder would you like to map

When you click the Finish button, the mapped drive will be created allowing you to navigate to the folder by drive letter and in a Remote Desktop Connection sharing the "drive" with the remote computer.
