You’ve setup SharePoint Workspace and learned how to use SharePoint Workspace Launchpad, but you’d prefer a more direct way of accessing files hosted in SharePoint. Great! You can do this via My Computer, similar to DropBox and Google Drive.
I’m using Microsoft Office 2010 on a Windows 7 64-bit PC. I already have Workspace setup.
- Open My Computer.
- In the address bar, enter %USERPROFILE%.
- Notice the Workspaces folder.
- Right-click and drag to your Desktop and choose Create Shortcut here.
You can now jump right to your cached SharePoint data via your desktop.
