Synology NAS Tip: Bookmarking and quickly accessing network shares in MacOS

In this video we look at how you can add a link to “Favourite Servers” in the Connect to Server function in macOS. When used in conjunction with a shortcut key, you can use Favourite Servers to quickly access the network shares of your Synology NAS.

Quick reference notes:

  • From your macOS desktop in the Finder menu, if we select Connect to Server
  • We can see the last network share that we connected to, in Server Address
  • If we enter the address of the share that we regularly access, and then click the Add (+) icon
  • The path to our network share will be added to the Favourite Servers list.
  • Now by using the shortcut keys Command and K
  • We are taken to the Connect to Server window, where we can select our bookmarked network share.
