SharePoint is a great way to share documents across a team. You can upload documents, track version history, and control access via checkouts. The document libraries on the website have a few shortcomings, though. You can’t move a file, for example. Copying the file to another location is painful, too.
You can make things better by accessing the document library through Windows Explorer. It can be accessed as a UNC path. To get the UNC path, just convert the URL like so:
|SharePoint document library URL||UNC path|
Using this little trick, you get all of the Windows functionality you’re used to with none of the restrictions of the SharePoint website. You can rename, drag & drop, and copy/paste just like you would with any network share. Using the SharePoint site isn’t bad, but this provides a better experience.
