[Solved] Unable to Access Mapped Network Drives in Windows 10.

I have a script in my Windows which helps me to mapped different shared locations as a drive.

net use G: \\server1\shared_folder /PERSISTENT:YES

On each logon, it used to mapped successfully (shared a blog on this too), however after upgrading my system to Windows 10, it doesn’t work. So, I figured out one quick solution which might also be helpful for you guys.



Simply, we need to modify the registry.

  • Open RegEdit
  • Then, browse to:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SOFTWARE -> Microsoft -> Windows -> CurrentVersion -> Policies -> System
  • On the right, you will see ConsentPromptBehaviorAdmin, ConsentPromptBehaviorUser … etc.
  • Click on empty space, ADD DWORD(32bit), then name it as “EnableLinkedConnections“.
  • Double click it and set the data to 1.
  • Reboot and you will see the mapped drives showing.

This has worked for me like a charm.
