Sharing a folder or hard drive

by Intuit Updated 1 year ago

Sharing a folder, or an entire hard drive in a network, has a number of benefits. The main benefit is that all of the networked computers will have easy access to the shared resource. To share a folder or hard drive, follow the steps below:

  1. Open Windows Explorer.
  2. Navigate to the Documents folder.
  3. Create and name a new folder.

Note: Avoid spaces in the folder name.

4. Right-click on the new folder and select the Properties option from the menu. The New folder Properties menu displays.
