SharePoint Shortcuts / New Slide Library Feature


I stumbled upon a couple new SharePoint hacks while poking at this “slides” problem a bit more today…

The first two attachments just ways to make it easier to get to SharePoint besides saving a link on the desktop.

The middle one (pnw-sharepoint-hub.png) is me “discovering” you can add a custom link to your own personal home page.

The last two are an option that came up when I was looking at the slide library app – it allowed me to create a connection between my Windows Explorer and SharePoint, which I found possibly useful.

BUT – it failed, so not so useful. I did notice a problem with it asking me for credentials – maybe what’s failing is a security setting?

I tried slide decks and single images today – I am wondering if this is not one of those “unsupported features.”
