I have been trying to access a shared folder in a Windows operating system using my Ubuntu laptop. There seems to be an issue in accessing these folder even though I have provided the username and passwords. The folder contains php web pages that I am trying to access through my laptop. How do I access this folder in Windows using a Unix based operating system?

Error Accessing Shared Windows Folder in Local Network Using Linux Operating System

If the windows installed along side with your ubuntu (dual boot) you don't have to put the file on the share folder. What you need is mounting the windows filesystem, browse to your folder/file you want to access, and move (cut/copy and paste) it to your ubuntu system folder.
After that, open the terminal, then change the owner and permission of the folder/file you just move and type:

cd /directory-of-your-file/
sudo chown your-username:group-name /folder-location
sudo chmod 777 -R /folder-location
find . -type d -exec chmod 755 {} ;
find . -type f -exec chmod 644 {} ;

But if you were in share networking with other windows computer, you must download and install Samba in your ubuntu. Because Samba will give you TCP/IP connection that can make you open network connection to windows system. This is the one of best part which Linux system made, while in Windows, thei're still not have/make application to connect their network to Linux/Unix system

to get the samba or see the presentation and documentation, go here:
