    Hi

    My school has just introduced a way for pupils with windows to be able to access their files easily straight from their computers through the windows equivalent of Finder.

    Anyway, my ICT teacher asked my to see if I could getting it working as I have a mac. We got a tutorial, sorry i cant show it to you, it needs a school login. However, basically on windows you have to 'Add New Network Place'. Then type in the address to your files, e.g:

    http://www.schoolname.com/loginname/my documents

    Then put in your actual login details, name and password. The it should just come up as a network folder thing ma jig on your windows finder (whatever its called). How can I do this on my mac? Thats all, thanks. Hope it was clear.

    Without being able to see more, it's difficult to say.

    However, try this: in Finder, go to the menu, then Go > Network.
    This should pull up a Finder window with visible networks. Find the one you're supposed to use, then see if it prompts you to enter your username and password.

    Depending on how it's configured on the school side, you can also try Finder menu > Go > Connect to server...

    I hope that helps.
