yahoo and sharing

By sayal4 ·
We have a problem in our network that when users right click on any resource they cant see sharing and security option and also if they check the property of the resource they cant see the sharing tab. If they login through administrator account then they can see the sharing tab and option.
I have tried by adding user in administrators group still the same problem.
Please help.

Do you have a peer-to-peer network or a domain?

What OS are we discussing?

You need to Disable Simple File Sharing in Explorer, Folder Options, View to see Security/Sharing tabs.

As stated above, Windows XP versions impose "Simple File Sharing" on users automatically. In definition, Windows assumes you are stupid. Follow his instructions, if you need more info, I suggest the help and support center. XP appears to be the first version of Windows to offer HELPFUL help.

That will get you to the option. The option, then, must be enabled to a user. I.E. they cannot be an almost completely locked out guest account.
