Hey, I'm trying to map a network drive like I always have but the option missing. Has anyone else on the latest build of Win11 also having this issue?

Good call. Updating.

As a workaround, you can use CLI steps:

Code:
net use $letter: \\network\share /user:$username

Example:

Code:
net use U: \\unraid\media /user:crazyea

Ok. So I figured it out.

If you open File explorer, select this pc, and then click on the menu, it shows up.

But If I click the quick access folders, or the network folder first, and then this pc, the menu will not show up. Weird.

I used to just right click the folder that I wanted to map, and it seems now that functionality is gone.

You can also right click on 'This PC' and choose 'Map network drive'. I just updated to 22621.755 and can confirm it is actually "glitching", intermittently it appears and disappears.

I'd recommend in the meantime to use 'This PC' -> right-click -> Map Network Drive' path.
