Video: Create and configure Windows 7 HomeGroup

Bill Detwiler provides a brief tutorial on setting up a Windows 7 homegroup and using it to share files.

Windows 7 offers a new networking feature called HomeGroup that is designed to offer some features of a traditional domain, but be easier for the average user to configure.

In this TR Dojo episode, I provide a brief tutorial on setting up a Windows 7 homegroup and using it to share files.
