Easily Share a Folders

Normally, If you want to share your folders on your hard drive with other computers on your network. You would right-click each folder that you want to share, and setup the individual share properties.

An alternate way to perform this action is to use the 'Shared Folder Wizard'. This wizard will walk you through setting up a shared folder.

Note: If you're using Windows XP Home, it can give you access to file/share permissions that would normally not be available to you.
  • From the Start menu, select the Run... command.
  • Type 'shrpubw.exe', and then press the Enter key.
  • Press the 'Next >' button.
  • In the Wizard, enter the path of the folder you want to share on your hard drive
  • Enter a name for the share, and then press the 'Next >' button.
  • Select the permissions you want to assign to the share, and then press the 'Next >' button.
  • Press the Finished button when done.
