Once you configure your computer to share files, you no longer have to copy files to a floppy disk or USB flash drive to transfer them to another computer. open them from other computers connected to the network, just like you’d open files that are stored on a single computer. You can also choose to have folders visible but not modifiable from other computers on the network.
To share files on your computer follow the steps below:
1. Log on to the computer as an administrator
2. Click Start--> My Documents--> Right click the folder that you want to share--> Then Click Sharing And Security.
Security measure, windows has disabled remote access to this computer--> Click the network setup wizard link--> On the file and printer sharing page of the network setup wizard, be sure to select--> Turn ON file and printer sharing--> If you do not see this message then you can skip to the next step.
4. In the properties dialog box, select Share this folder on the network check box.
6. Click 'OK'
7. Windows Explorer will show a hand holding the folder icon, Indicating the folder is now shared.
