How to update your Active Directory/Shared Drive policy

If you have moved to a new department or have been given updated shared drive (H:, S:, V:, etc) mappings, you may not see these changes immediately.  This will update your settings:
  • Open the File Explorer
  • Right-Click the bad drive mapping and select Disconnect
  • Click Start
  • Type cmd and then click the Command Prompt icon when it appears
  • At the DOS prompt type:  gpupdate /force
  • follow the prompts and log out when it asks you to do so.
If you are working remotely, you will do this in your session on remotedesktop.
