Lesson 3- Sharing Files and Printers in Windows XP and Vista


In Lesson 3 we show two computers.  One running XP and the other Vista.  They are both new installs so the settings we change are the default ones you would see if you never touched the networking and sharing settings.  We set the computer and workgroup name, check the networking protocols, enable file and printer sharing in both XP and Vista. Then we share a few folders and printers on each computer.

Hello and welcome to Lesson 3. In this lesson we're going to walk you through sharing files and printers. We're going to set up the sharing so that any computer on the network can have full access to the files and printers. We're going to cover the steps slowly with a lot of explanation. Then in Lesson 4 we will go to each of the computers and share files and printers.

Sharing a folder in XP

Here in Windows XP what we're going to do is just create a folder. We'll call it Share and to share this folder we need to right-click on it. Go to Sharing and Security and we're on the sharing tab. This is what the sharing page looks like when you've never shared anything before. It prompts you to run a Network Setup Wizard to enable file sharing. You don't want to do that. You want to click this bottom link 'if you understand security risks', yes, click that and it again prompts you to run the wizard we'll tell it to just enable file sharing and click okay.

If you've once enable file sharing on your computer, when you look at the sharing page will look like this. We need to click 'share this folder on the network'. The share name will default to the name of the folder and we're going to tell it to allow network users to change my files. That means anyone who connects to this computer and this share will have full access to this folder. They'll be able to upload their own files, change any of the files in the folder and even delete files in the folder.  We'll click okay and that's it. The icon now has a hand on it which means it's shared and now anyone on the network can access this shared folder.

Sharing a folder in Vista

In Windows Vista it's very similar process, there's just a few more options. We're going to do the same thing in Vista we'll right-click, go to new and folder. We'll also call it Share we'll right-click on it, choose share and Windows Vista you're asked who you want to share with. By default it will have your username and a permission level of owner. To share with everyone we'll click the little down arrow here, choose Everyone and add and now Everyone shows up the list
