1.      Log on as a user with administrative authority.

2.      In the property sheet for the folder, select the Sharing tab.

  • Microsoft recommends using the Network Setup wizard. To run the wizard, click the Network Setup Wizard link.
  • Or, click the If you understand the security risks but want to share files without running the wizard, click here link.

4.      Check Share this folder on the network.
