    Advanced sharing query.


    I have four computers on a network. (Two are 32 bit and two are 64 bit)
    On three of these, if I wish to share a folder - when I go to "GIVE ACCESS TO" - I get the usual choices.
    On the remaining machine, I get the one choice "ADVANCED SHARING". How can I bring this into line with the others
    Your help and guidance very much appreciated.

    In File Explorer, on the View ribbon select Options. In the 'Folder options' box that appears, select its View tab. Scroll down to the bottom of 'Advanced settings' and tick the box for 'Use Sharing Wizard (Recommended)'.

    There has been an interesting postscript to this thread.
    Firstly thanks to Bree for solving the problem.

    For some time, the computer in question did not always show in the network list - it was very intermittent (and annoying)
    I noticed that following Bree's fix - the computer disappeared completely from the network list.

    Applying logic (Guesswork) - I undid the fix, then made sure that all the advanced entries/permissions were removed - then re applied 'the fix'.
    This did the trick, so now the computer appears everytime in the network list.

    Thanks for the postscript. That is an interesting observation and should help others. A common question here is 'why can't other PCs see my Windows 10 PC on the network?'.
