    Sharing tab missing in properties


    I have Win 10 Home 64 bit.

    In my Win 7 there used to be a Share tab in file properties. In my Win 10 this tab is missing in properties. Any help in recovering it would be appreciated.

    As additional information, I am the sole user of the PC with only the one account that came with the pre-installed OS. I have not set up a Homegroup.

    There's a sharing tab on folders- can you see that? I don't have one on files.

    And this still seems applicable in Win 10 if of interest:

    So there is! Thinking back to Win 7, I'm now not sure whether I was always sharing folders, not individual files. Unfortunately it's too late to check. Anyway, many thanks - there's no reason not to have a folder with only a single file in it.
