You can map the drive with PowerShell and make it persist in file explorer,
To open PowerShell press the Windows Key + R and type in
and then press enter.
In PowerShell paste this code in but change "\\machine\share" to your drive name (you need the quotes in the command).
New-PSDrive –Name "T" -PSProvider FileSystem -Root "\\machine\share" -Persist
Now when you open File Explorer and click on This PC you will have a new drive called T
New-PSDrive –Name "T" -PSProvider FileSystem -Root "\\192.168.100.1\volume9" -Persist
