    Hello,

    I work in a lan house, and I want to share a folder in XP, but I can't find the place to share it using a password, I remember in win98 that the place to put the password was in the same window... can anyone help me?

    you have to create a user with a password

    eg. fred with a password of password

    then goto the security tab of the porperties of the folder

    remove everyone as a user for that folder

    add fred as a user and give him the rights you want


    to create a user right click on my computer and choose manage, then goto users and create a user

    if you can't see your security tab its hidding it from you, can't remeber how to turn this on

    in order to do some of what Kheldar is talking about, you will need to disable simple file sharing first(last checkbox in the attached pic). Folder options can either be accessed from the control pannel or Tools -> Folder Options in any Explorer window
    I've gone too far and need to move on!
