    What has happened to the Network Place?


    In WinXP we could set up Network Places and not have to enter the full
    URLs every time we wanted to go to that resource. What is it called in
    Vista and how do I set one up?

    It's called "Network" and is found on the Start Menu unless you've removed
    it.

    It is there, and it is showing me all the computers and places on my domain.
    How does it help me post a page from Word 2007 to my blog at

    Open My Computer. Right click on any area on the right hand side where the
    drives are listed. You see "Add a Network Location". I believe that's what
    you're asking for.

    That, indeed, is what I was looking for. I was able to add a network place
    to my file server on a box in the domain.

    It did not help me connect to the blog server, which requires me to log
    in--kept saying it didn't look like a valid address.

    Perhaps this has to be set up in IE7.

    Hi

    I had a hard time finding this also since a stupid web hotel made me
    use web folders and not FTP. I figured it out. This is how to access
    web folders in Vista:

    1. Hit start menu and go to "Network"
    2. Hit Alt-button to get the tools-menu.
    3. Go to Tools -> Map Network Drive
    4. Click on the link on the bottom that says "Connect to a web site
    that you can use to store your documents and pictures"
    5. Hit Next
    6. Choose "Choose a custom network location" and hit Next.
    7. Enter your url location i.e. "ftp://www.yousite.com" and hit Next.
    8. Uncheck "Log in anonymously" and enter your login name, hit Next
    9. Type in the name of your connection and hit Next.
    10. hit Finish.

    Now you should be able to enter your password and log on to your web
    folders.

    Enjoy!
