I'm playing with Sharing now but i'm noticing that sometimes when I save a file on one computer it isn' accessible to the other computer until I right click and SHare it. I thought by sharing the folder it would just share every new file. Is there a way to do that?
Hi and welcome
Homegroup sharing. In homegroup you share lib's (media, docs, etc) In sharing you share contents. If there are only 2 computers on the network and it is wired, you secure is preety good.
Anti Virus --good one updated automatically ( iuse eset smart security which also has a built in fire wall)
If wifi you can increase security by making your router 'mac address accessable only' that will mean the only machines that can log onto your router must have the address of the network card in your machine.
Those two on wifi should be enough. Always remember the final precaution is not to click on something you don tknow.
