Creating a Workgroup

A workgroup is an organizational unit. It is a loose association of computers wherein each computer tracks and controls access to local resources. These resources may be folders located on the local hard drive or hardware devices attached directly to the computer (such as a printer). Each individual computer in the workgroup controls how access to these resources occurs.

If your network is small—fewer than 10 computers—a workgroup is an easy way to configure your network and provide access to various resources. It does not require a single individual to be designated as the administrator. Rather, each user is the administrator for his or her computer.
