Hi Guys,,

Is there a way to view all the files that you are currently sharing in Homegroup? I couldn't remember anymore those files that I right clicked then shared to the homegroup. Thanks

s7ven,

I would check under computer management there will be a option called shared folders.

On the machines I have access have all the currently shared files. then again the two I have access too at the current moment are Ultimate and Pro. AS well as at my apartment all my folders show up but I am also running under a domain so HomeGroup is disabled.
