Am using Windows XP and SharePoint 2007 (relics, I know!).
I have added my SharePoint sites via My Network Places :: Add a network place and these sites show up in My Network Places under the Local Network heading. I can browse the Document Libraries and add/remove files and -- when it comes to MS Office documents, at least -- I can open/edit files easily enough.
However, it doesn't behave entirely like a traditional drive ... and I'm wondering: is there anyway to map a Document Library so that it will behave like a normal folder?
Behavior I am seeing is:
- Can't drag a file directly from the Document Library Explorer window into an email.
- Can't edit non-MS Office documents (they will just open in Internet Explorer, for example: a basic text document loses the right-click 'edit' option and a double click opens IE instead of Notepad).
- Can't save a file to the Document Library from a non-MS Office piece of software (for example, if I open WordPad, browse to my network places and open my SharePoint site I cannot save the file).
Is there a way to do this with SharePoint?
