Lesson 16. Sharing Workstations and Sett... > Sharing Resources on Your Computer

Sharing Resources on Your Computer

Most files on your computer are probably applicable only to you and your work. However, some of your files may be useful to your co-workers. Windows allows you to share files (or, more precisely, disk drives and folders) and, later, to stop sharing them. In addition, while there may be printers on your network designated as shared printers, you may have a printer connected to your computer. Windows permits you to share (and stop sharing) your printer with your co-workers as well.

When you share a resource, you can specify who has access to it and what degree of access they have. Once you have shared a resource, other users have access to it as long as it remains shared and the computer on which it resides is online. When you share a disk drive, you share all folders and files on it as well.
