That is not share, you have just applied a security permission.

You need to share a folder from this location by right clicking > Properties > Sharing and then share

You cannot see the other machines because you have not shared anything on those other machines.

My apologies, You need to make the share on the other machines in order for it to be seen your own machine

You added the everyone group so that everyone on the machine can access it but no you have not yet shared it

Try to click on advanced sharing and then sharing permissions

Once done add the Everyone user group as read/write

Give it a share name and then click apply and then okay

Shadowjk you don't need to have anything shared. And if it would have been needed, all drives are already shared with like "\\computer\C$" if you have more harddrives it will be d$ and so on.

Ikurrt i want you to sen a picture of the same screen as i do.
