Connecting to a shared drive on your Mac:
Time: ~5 minutes
Items: OS X Mac and login information for your Windows PC
Skill Level: Beginner
Before we begin, be sure that you have the login information for the Windows PC that the shared drive is on.
1) Open Finder on your Mac.
2) Once the Finder window opens up, press Cmd + K. The Connect to Server dialog box pops up.
3) In the Server Address box, type in smb://ComputerName/SharedDriveName. Substitute ComputerName and SharedDriveName with the PC you are trying to connect to, and the drive you are trying to connect to. In the example seen below, I am connecting to a drive name Share Drive on a PC named Mike-PC, therefore I use smb://Mike-PC/Share Drive.
4) After hitting enter or Browse, you will be asked to login. This is where you will enter the Windows login information that you use. For example, if your user account on your PC is Mike and your password is Rocket43!, enter that information.
5) You will now be able to view all contents for the drive you specified. Alternatively, you can just enter the computer name and nothing else, to see all files on your PC.
