Use the OneDrive sync client, instead. IE support, which is required to get mapped drives working, will be dropped early next year.

  • but our users want to have the desktop feel when working with sharepoint document libraries,, same experience when they worked with network drives

    You get that with sync'ed Doc Libs. While it isn't a drive letter, it is present in Windows Explorer like any other folder in Windows. I would not expect WebDAV to have much life after the removal of support for IE in March 2021.

  • so you mean mapping a sharepoint online document library as a mapped network drive is no more considered a solid and future-proof approach?

    It has never been solid and it isn't future-proof.
