Unfortunately whenever you click on a single file in Windows 7, it never shows an option for sharing, instead you can share a file by two easy ways:

  1. Create a folder and paste here the file you want to share. Then right click the folder and there select "share with" option
  2. Or if you don't want to create a new folder or there is any type of restriction then alternatively you can share files by pasting it to public folder which is located at C:UsersPublic

But one drawback of using the above approach is that, if both the users are working continuously on a file, i.e. Both users update the status of file from same time to time, then you will be required to copy paste again and again. So folder sharing option is good in such a situation. Especially when you are developing some code files or maintaining a log.

Hi there, in windows 7 operating system, it is very easy to share documents with other users. Maybe you are trying to share a file like Document file. If so, then please note you cannot share with right click on a document.

You can do it by making a folder then put your file into this folder the right click this folder then you will see Home group (Read) and Home group (Read/Write). Now you can select what you want.

Another way is to file and print sharing from Windows 7. Please open Control Panel then click Network and sharing center; then Click Advanced sharing Settings. Scroll down and check, Turn on file and printer sharing as below picture.
