How do I find out where a network drive on my work machine is mapped to?

One of the four has the location in brackets next to it but the other three don't.

"One of the four has the location in brackets next to it but the other 3 don't." -- It looks weird. Can you upload an image illustrating this situation? – Jimm Chen Feb 1 '12 at 12:13

Go to Start » Run, type in cmd and press OK.

In the cmd box, paste the following, then press Enter to run it.

wmic path Win32_LogicalDisk Where DriveType="4" get DeviceID, ProviderName

Doing the above but typing in NET USE instead of copying the above also yields the same result.

In Windows Explorer, you can also switch the view to "Details" and right-click the header to add a column named "Network location":

Helps if the admin has disabled CMD for you (!)

I couldn't find "Network Location" on the list on Win 7 Pro. – pghcpa Sep 24 '15 at 22:54
@pghcpa I see the option only in the root of "My Computer", not inside any of the network drives. Are you looking there? – PaloDravecky Sep 25 '15 at 8:13
Yes, found it there, thanks! – pghcpa Sep 30 '15 at 21:50

In Windows, if you have mapped network drives and you don't know the UNC path for them, you can start a command prompt (Start | Run | cmd.exe) and use the net use command to list your mapped drives and their UNC paths.
