Windows 7: How to Tell Which Libraries/Folders are Shared?

How to Tell Which Libraries/Folders are Shared?

If I create additional libraries and share some but not others with the homegroup - how can quickly tell which libraries are shared and which are not? I know I can click on each one in Windows Explorer and check the details pane, but that's not very convenient. I'd also like to know whether the sharing is read-only or read write. Seems like there ought to be a way to see everything that's shared. The Sharing snap-in for MMC doesn't do the trick either.

Dear EllisG,

I don't know for sure if this is what you are looking for, but have you considered opening a console window(cmd.exe) and then entering the command: net share

Let me know if that works for you.
Kindest regards,
Marcel - www.ictdesk.net

EDIT: sorry, ignore my message above, because you also asked for seeing the type of share. I am going to think of something else.

OK, I think this is what you need:

Type fsmgmt.msc into the start search box.
