Chapter 25. Managing Users > Sharing Files Among Users

Sharing Files Among Users

When you set up multiple users on your computer, you'll notice that every user gets his or her own clean Desktop and My Documents folder. In fact, if your hard drive is formatted using the NTFS file system, users have the option of making their My Documents folders private when they create a password, so other users can't see into them.

That's great for keeping everyone's stuff separate, but what do you do when you want to have files that anyone can get to? This might come up when different people are working on a collaborative project, or when you want to keep common nonconfidential information in a shared place.
