Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Add the folders to the Windows Homegroup. The Windows Homegroup is a special networking function designed to make it easier for you to access shared files without having to type file paths

    "...a simple home network..." ?

    Connecting 6 different networks together is not likely going to be like setting up a simple home network.

    You will need at least a router (and networking knowledge).  And yes, it might be possible to  enable file sharing, but it will depend on how those networks are designed and how you connect them.

    is instantiated by a physical interconnection of the networks, an exchange of routing information through the border gateway protocol for each switch for each switch port with four computers a switch will only send a message to the device that needs requests it You can use the Share with menu to select individual files and folders and share them with others windows explorer.to open Windows Explorer  click the Start button your user name any file or folder

    You stated "Internet networks".  Are these networks in different locations?  Is one of these a main office?  What is the purpose of sharing the files?  Does everyone need access to files at each of the locations?  Sorry for all the questions, but interconnecting different networks is more complicated than file sharing on a home network.
