Sharing a Resource

Windows Vista gives you two ways to share a resource:

  • If you have Public Folder Sharing turned on, make a copy of the folder or file in the Public folder or one of its subfolders: Public Documents, Public Downloads, Public Music, Public Pictures, Public Videos, or Recorded TV. This is the way to go if you want to share individual files, or if you worry about permissions for the Public folder only (the subfolders inherit the Public folder’s permissions).

    Tip

    To get to the Public folder, open any folder window, display the Folders list, and then click Desktop. The default Desktop folder contains seven items: your user account folder, Computer, Network, Internet Explorer, Control Panel, Recycle Bin, and Public.


  • Activate sharing and set permissions on the folder you want to share. This is the way to go if you don’t want deal with copies of your files and folders or if you want to set separate permissions for different folders.
