Windows 7: Public Documents can not be shared

Dear seavixen32 and dear alphanumeric,
thank you very much for your very kind support. You are right, I Use Win 7 and some Macbook Pro in the Network. It seems that there is no solution to add the access for everyone on Public Document Folder in the Directory Public. But so it seems to be. But that doesn’t make real sense to me: why the folder public documents is different to the other folders in the same directory. I don’t know why and for what? LG Karl
