Windows 7: Network Sharing and Creating Workgroup


Hi dear Sam Guptill,

You seem to be in great trouble without sharing.  Just like in Windows XP, you can do sharing in Windows 7. It is simple. You just need to follow some steps to accomplish the sharing in Windows 7. First you need to go to the control panel of your computer. Then go to advanced sharing settings in control panel.

Now fetch for network discovery. There should be network discovery. If there are no network discovery than create a network discovery. Now you can find all the computers in your network. You can now do this sharing completely by using network discovery. You can change the folder’s sharing option if needed. One most important thing, two computers must have same time. Without this you can not create the home group. The work group in windows XP is known as home group here. In this way you can share files also with windows 7.

I think you can get my point to enable sharing in your computer. Hope it will help you. Make me known whether it works or not.
