You can work with files without actually being in the Alfresco Share interface.
Your administrator can map the repository so that you can access your content using Windows
Explorer or a desktop shortcut. If you are working in this way, then there will be up to three
additional files shown on each level of the Alfresco Community Edition
Note: The Share.url is only available within site folders, rather than
everywhere in the repository.
You can use these files to add content to the repository,
check documents in and out, view document details, and open Alfresco Share
in a browser window.
Note: These options only function when you are working in a Windows environment.
