In Pro or Ultimate you can right click "my computer" and click "manage" then under "shares" you can see all shares.

In Home Premium, I am still looking for a good way to see shared folders too.

Hi hispanico & Nate

Connect back to yourself.

e.g. if you PC's name MYWIN7
OPEN windows Explorer (WindowsKey+E)
In the address bar, type \\MYWIN7
alternatively you could type your IPADDRESS
e.g. \\xx.xx.xx.xx

@nate42nd - Is the compmgmt.msc not in Home Premium at all?

Thanks guys, that will work.

If you have Pro or above you can access shares from computer management

Yes, it's there but a lot of functionality is gone in HP.

I don't have HP, but I've worked on it.
