the "shared" folder is intended to be shared only with other users of the SAME computer.

if you wish to share a folder either create a new folder on each laptop or choose an existing folder then right click the folder, left click sharing and security, then check the box to "share this folder on the network".

if you want to be able to write to the folder u have to check the box "allow network users to change my files"

after this is done you should have access to it from the other computer.

don't forget to "mark as helpful" any post that u find useful.
