Tips and tricks: share portal to Windows Explorer

If you’re in the Army and reading this, it’ll make more sense. But it’s not necessary.

Think of Google Drive and Windows Explorer. You can access Google Drive via Windows Explorer. And once you do, you can make shortcuts to it and use it the way you normally use Windows.

Well today, what we call the share portal at work is like Google Drive. It’s a shareable filing system accessible via intranet. One of the buttons at the top, opens to a ribbon.

Buried in the ribbon, I found a feature labeled something like “Open in Explorer.” Windows Explorer. Boom!

I’m not that huge a fan of Microsoft’s Explorer programs or its Office suite of products. They’re a’ight. Like everyone else, after years of using Microsoft products at work, it’s muscle memory now.
