How to share files over a Lan for Windows 7

In this tutorial, I will show you how to setup a file sharing server on your local Microsoft Network.

First of all, to enable sharing on a Microsoft network, all computers that will access a shared resource must be in the same Workgroup or Domain.

To Change or view the workgroup of your system just right click on “My Computer”
(My Computer – Properties – computer name – Change – workgroup)
Note down the workgroup name and make sure that both computers are at the same Workgroup

After that make a folder on the desired computer and name it as you wish
Right click on it and go to properties and then to “Sharing” Tab
note down the Network Path
and click “Share” and choose your account so it can be protected if you use password!

Now go to the other computer and right click on “My Computer”
choose “Map network Drive”
(My Computer–Map Network Drive)

And then write the network path and choose the option “Reconnect at logon”
and click finish!
Example: \\Server\Share
————- \\(yours computer name)\(Shared folder’s Name)

-If it ask for a Username and Password
just type the account of the computer that shares the folder

-When you right click on “My computer” make sure it’s not a shortcut
or you won’t find the properties of your system

-This can be done with a desktop pc with a laptop over wireless network!

-The connection is possible if you have connected both computer with LAN cable or
they just share connection from the local Router
