Windows 7: How to view if it is a shared item navigation properties

How to view if it is a shared item navigation properties

Dear Forum,

I am just wondering if someone could assist me in knowing whether a file, folder is shared by displaying it down the bottom of the preview pane like the one attached.

I am having some time in going through each individual file to see if it is shared or not.

Thank you
