    You don't need a Homegroup to share folders. You can log in as administrator and turn off sharing on the folders that are shared.

    These are the defaults with the exception of downloads folder which I shared explicitly.

    Name      ScopeName Path                    Description
    ----      --------- ----                    -----------
    ADMIN$    *         C:\Windows              Remote Admin
    C$        *         C:\                     Default share
    Downloads *         C:\Users\Hali\Downloads
    IPC$      *                                 Remote IPC
    Users     *         C:\Users
    
    
    PS C:\Windows\system32>
    If you have ever shared anything in C:\Users then C:\Users remains shared.

    This quote applies to windows 10 also..


    The C:\Users folder is shared when any sub folders from C:\Users\\ is shared
    I seem to get an error with get-smbshare...

    I'm getting confused. The reason I think the folders show in my standard account as shared is because I have accessed those folders from the admin account. Would that lead to the folders appearing as shared?

    No. Regardless of how the folders got shared in the first place, they are shared. You can turn off sharing by logging in to the admin account, right clicking on the folders and turn off sharing via properties.

    I think I'm going to say these folders became shared between the admin and standard user accounts because I granted access to them from the admin account... I will head over to the admin account to see if the the sharing tab is in the right click properties of those folders. There is no sharing tab in the properties of those folders when right clicked from the standard user account.

    You will be looking for this:

    Click on the Advanced Sharing button in the properties windows, then uncheck the box for Share This Folder under advanced sharing properties.

    My guess is that you probably have Public Folder Sharing turned on.

    Nope, turned off.

    Are you sure this sharing state cannot be shown simply because of sharing between multiple users of a machine rather than over a network?

    Hey Kol12,
    See if you can get the Sharing Tab back, which should help you address the issue your having.

    1. Make sure the following 2 Services are running and set to Automatic
    a. Security Accounts Manager
    b. Server

    2. Use regedit and navigate to following key and check it.
    a. HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shellex\PropertySheetHandlers\Sharing
    b. REG_SZ and Data {f81e9010-6ea4-11ce-a7ff-00aa003ca9f6}

    3. If the Sharing folder does not exist, create it.
    a. Right Click on the PropertySheetHandlers folder, select New > Key, and name it Sharing
    b. If the Data is blank, double click on it and paste in {f81e9010-6ea4-11ce-a7ff-00aa003ca9f6}

    4. Close regedit, and open the properties of a folder. The sharing tab should be there, if not then reboot and check again.
