Accessing Homegroup-Shared Libraries

Homegroup shares can be accessed from Computer or other navigators: click Start, then Computer, your name, or a library name. Once you open a navigator, scroll the left-hand pane until Homegroup is visible. Click the user name to see a list of available libraries (Figure 12).

To view or open the contents of a library, double-click it. Navigate to the folder you want to use (Figure 13).

Although homegroups enable you to share folders, other users in a homegroup cannot change or delete files unless you specifically allow it.
