Having trouble sharing your network path with your friends because your disk path is copied instead of the desired network path? Let's take an example.

Suppose you need to e-mail the file you created and save the copy on the network. You need to tell your friends about the file, so enter a link of your route and send it to them. the problem arises Let's say for example that the path where you have the specified file is

B: Home customer form.html.

You can't expect everyone to have drive B on their system that maps to the server you saved the file to. Instead you will want to send the path in the format like

State City Home customer form.html.

Generally, the UNC path format in Windows 10 is servername sharename path file name and to avoid drive letters you need to use Copy Path Copy which needs to be downloaded and installed on your system. Once this is done, the copy of the path appears in the context menu of all the files you access and, by changing some settings, you can copy the UNC (Uniform Naming Convention) network path without the drive letter.
