    disable public folder sharing using netsh - win10


    Hi,
    I know how to disable Network Discovery or File and Printer Sharing via the following command lines:

    netsh advfirewall firewall set rule group="Network Discovery" new enable=no
    netsh advfirewall firewall set rule group="File and Printer Sharing" new enable=no

    But I didn't find a way to disable Public Folder Sharing using cmd or reg, any idea?

    Also is there a way to set the current Lan network connection as metered via registry or command prompt?
    Thanks.

    :)

    Disable public folders

    Turn off Public folder sharing

    Its already off.

    public folder sharing means that other computers can access my public folders, that is one of the things i found when researching this, and it was already off.

    What i want is a way to disable these folders so that not even i can use them, or at least all my programs use the private folder, instead of the public one.

    i`m almost going back to win7 due to these small but constant annoyances, most i`ve been able to solve, but not this one

  3. problem with windows 10 security updates - breaks Zenui Android File manager file transfer

    Same issues here. I do not use Password Login on my PCs. I have Password Protected Sharing Disables and I can only access PUBLIC file/folders with Zenui. Attempting to access other shared drives/folders result in a request for credentials. (acts as though
    Password Protected Sharing is Enabled)

    One notable exception on my network is, my PC that is a Win7 Home Upgraded to Win10 Home without a clean install of Win10. I can fully access all shared file/folder/drives. All my other network PCs are Win7 Pro upgraded to Win10 Pro then a clean install
    of Win10 Pro.

    Notes - I have deleted and setup a new Homegroup (not that that should matter). And all my PCs have full access to each other.

    Hopefully this extra info will help someone figure this out.

    **** Edited 11:25 pm - Just for grins, I added a PC configured with Win7 Pro to the network and I have full access to all shared file/folders/drives on this PC with my phone.
