Automatically Connect to a Network Drive at Login

Modified on Thu, 21 May 2015 at 09:43 AM

Step 1: Connect to the Network Drives

  • Make sure you are connected to the company network.
  • Mount the network drives by running the application STO KG DRIVES or CPH KG DRIVES.

Step 2: Add Network Drive to User Login Items

  • Head to System Preferences > Users & Groups
  • Select your user account from the list on the left and click the Login Items tab on the right side of the window. This shows you all of the apps, scripts, documents, and user services that are configured to launch automatically when your user account logs in.
  • To add your network drive to this list, simply locate the network drive’s icon on your Desktop, and then drag and drop it into the Login Items list.

  • By default, whenever a Mac connects to a network drive it opens a Finder window to display the drive’s contents. If you don’t want this to happen with your automatically mounted network drive, just check the Hide box after you add it to the Login Items list. This will allow the network drive to mount quietly in the background, so that it’s ready and waiting for you when you need it.
