SharePoint 2013 Design Manager - Cannot Map Network Drive in Windows Server 2008/2012?

I was trying to map Master Page Gallery as network drive from Windows Server 2008 R2, but got this error message:
"Network Error: Windows cannot access <URL>. Check the spelling of the name. Otherwise, there might be a problem with your network. To try to identify and resolve network problems, click Diagnose. Error code: 0x80070043. The network name cannot be found.

This is due to: "Desktop  Experience" feature not enabled on Windows Servers by default. To resolve this error, follow these steps:
  • Open Server Manager in Windows Server 
  • Click on "Features" node and then Click on "Add Feature" link.
  • Select "Desktop Experience" and click Next >> Next >>Install to complete the wizard.

Once rebooted, I was able to map my SharePoint 2013 master pages gallery to network drive successfully!
