Fixing Warnings opening files in Explorer from SharePoint

While opening files in Explorer to a connected SharePoint Document library, you may receive a warning that action is unsafe, etc.  The fix to this for network drives is to add them to the Intranet sites in Internet Settings.  It isn’t clear how to do this for SharePoint as using SSL gives you a address such as \\sharepoint@SSL\davwwwroot\.  Adding this site to your list just results in it storing SSL as an address rather than the full address you want (i.e. sharepoint@SSL).  The fix is simple, just use registry

I’ve directly added sites to my intranet sets in the past before with registry.  It is how I manage my company so users can still modify their trusted sites, but I can inject the proper trusted/intranet sites they need for things to work.

Mapping a drive letter to a SharePoint Document Library

I was looking for a way to accomplish the need of making it easier for users to access a SharePoint Document Library, with the plus side of being able to add this into a GPO and letting it be mapped across the domain. Of course you can add a network location to a SharePoint Document Library, but I didn’t know of a way to script that via a GPO logon script. I really didn’t research much into that, I figured mapping drives would be easier to explain to users.

It turns out this is really simple to do. The SharePoint server maps it as a WebDav path on a network share. So by using \\SERVERNAME\DavWWWroot\ I got the root of the SharePoint site. From there, I just filled out the rest. Such as \\SharePoint\DavWWWroot\Shared&20Documents links to the Shared Documents library on the SharePoint site.

From that point on, its as simple as using a GPO to deploy this and map the drive.
