Windows 7: Network permissions for a folder inside already shared folder?

Network permissions for a folder inside already shared folder?

Hello,

I'd like to edit network permissions for one of the folders inside a shared folder. I don't want to specifically share that folder on it's own, I like that it belongs inside existing shared folder already. I've disabled Share Wizard, and I can only edit it's settings if I share it on it's own, which I don't want to.

Any workarounds? The folder it belongs to is set to read for everyone, I'd like this one to also have change/edit/full control.
