Home Sweet Homegroup: Networking the Easy Way in Windows 7
Now that the warmer weather is here, the last thing the author wants to do is fiddle with his network configuration. He would rather be gardening! If one remembers what a headache it could be to set up file and printer sharing in earlier versions of Windows, one would be amazed at the difference a homegroup makes. HomeGroup is a new feature in Windows 7 that makes file and printer sharing on a home network so easy, anyone can set it up in about thirty seconds. Literally. A homegroup makes it a snap for the author to access files and printers on other PCs on his home network.
