Home Networking

Home networks—which can be wired, wireless or a combination—are ideal for sharing a high-speed Internet connection, using one printer with several PCs, or sharing files on multiple computers. This section offers tips on safe, hypersonic networking.

Desktop Shortcuts for Your Network Resources

Shortcuts on your desktop are the quickest way to access computers, drives, folders, or other resources on your network. To create a shortcut, just open My Network Places, and drag each frequently used folder or item to your desktop. Voilá! XP creates a desktop shortcut for each one. If you’ve created mapped network drives, as described in Section 9.2.5, drag those to the desktop from Windows Explorer. Then when you want to open any of these items, just double-click them.
