Add an Office 365 sharepoint folder to your local Favorites in Explorer.


It is very handy to add an Office 365 SharePoint website to the Favorites of your local Windows Explorer.

On your SharePoint website go to the folder you’ll want to add, to you’re Favorites, en Select Library (Bibliotheek in Dutch)

Select the ‘Connect to Office’

You’ll see the message that your library is added to the SharePoint-sites

Then select the ‘Opening with Explorer’ option

The first time you try to open the site, you receive the message to add the site to trusted sites

Go to internet explorer options => security => trusted sites => Websites => Add https://*

Restart Internet explorer now !

Go back and try to open the document folder with Explorer again. (Sometimes you need to try a few times to work)

Then the folder is opened with Windows Explorer

Click right on favorites in the Explorer, en select ‘Add the current location to Favorites’.

After a short time the folder is added to your Favorites !
