I'm using Windows XP OS. The problem is when I'm trying to share a folder from my PC, I can't. Because the share option is disable there. Normally there should be an option to enable the sharing, but that also not coming. Why? Is there any service to enable for sharing folder? Can you please give me a solution for this?

Is the server service running?

In network connections, open the status window for your local area connection. Click on Properties. Make sure File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Network is checked. Click OK.

Right click on the folder you want to share. Click on properties. Click on the Sharing Tab. Click on Share this folder. Click on Apply.

Let us know if there is an error or what part of the process you are having a problem.
