Drives - Map a Network Drive

Open Files and click on "Other Locations" on the left side overview. It should open a window similar to the one below:
Connect to server
Enter the address of the server into the box which says "Enter server address..." with one of the following prefixes appended to the beginning of the address.
|File Transfer Protocol||ftp:// or ftps://|
|Network File System||nfs://|
|SSH File Transfter Protocol||sftp:// or ssh://|
|WebDAV||dav:// or davs://|
