Open with Windows Explorer in Document Library

  Asked By: Madhu    Date: Sep 29    Category: MOSS    Views: 3332

User A want to upload multiple documents in a document library in Sharepoint
Portal 2007 (MOSS) on his computer, he don't want to use menu Upload (single or
multiple documents), so he did this steps:

1. Click on the View All site Content

2. Click on a existing folder

3. Click Action -->Open with Windows Explorer
But the Windows Explorer didn't come out / can not be opened.

He tried the same above steps in my computer using his Account, then the Windows
Explorer come out (can be opened).
I did the same in my computer using my account, then the Windows Explorer come
out too (can be opened).

Can anyone know the reason and the solution about this case?

Alternative way:

Open your Sharepoint page.
Go into the directory where you want to upload  files.
In the menu bar of this folder select Settings -> document  Library Settings.
Scroll down until you find the heading Views. Below that header you'll see a
link called Explorer View. Click it.
On the next screen, don't change anything. Just click OK.
Wait a moment while Internet Explorer is processing the Explorer View.
Your IE window now contains the Windows Explorer view of your document
