Windows 7: Who's "Everybody" for sharing?

05 Aug 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium x64 SP 1
Who's "Everybody" for sharing?

I have a home network in which I connect a desktop and a laptop, both Windows 7 Home Premium machines. I've selected "Everyone" for sharing folders between these computers, but who exactly is "everyone"? Is this just everybody on my home network?

If I wanted to change that designation, how can I add each computer's name to the other's shared folders? The add option doesn't seem to allow this. For example, if the desktop is named A and the laptop is named B, I want to list A for B's folders, and B for A's folders.

I think that everybody means it's shared with anyone which is on the network,and if some new pc that will join the network.
(I'm not sure for this,so you can wait some with more knowlege about this to explain this )
