    How to 'share' read-only copy of wookbook?


    How do you 'share' a read-only copy workbook in Office 365 subscription?

    We all have a copy of 365 and have downloaded the programs (excel, word...) to our office boxes.

    User Authorworkbook is constantly updating a workbook call project and others need to access it (read-only) on a regular basis. How does Authorworkbook configure access to this workbook in a read-only mode? Authorworkbook does not want to publish or take actions beyond an initial setup (to share) and saving the workbook when it is modified. Changes occur often.

    We do not use a server. We do not use sharepoint. We have intermediate skills and can setup shared drives etc. All run windows 10.

    Thank you.

    :)

  2. Removing Read Only from shared files

    Hi fink52,

    This issue might occur if you have not given full control to the folder, when you share it with everyone. I suggest you follow the below steps and check if it helps:

    • Right-click the folder.
    • Select Properties.
    • Click on Sharing tab.
    • Click on Advanced Sharing button.
    • Put a check mark next to the Share this folder option.
    • Click the Permission button.
    • Put a check mark next to the Full control option.
    • Click on Apply, then click OK.

    Let us know how it goes.

  3. Cannot access shared network drive


    I could scream! so much time wasted on this stupid error, as if time is not precious enough!
    It probably would work fine if I could see the other computer! But I cannot see the other computer!

    Cannot access shared network drive


    Personally, I wouldnt use Everyone. If anyone hacks into you, they have full access to everything and can demolish everything on your raid. I would rather set up accounts and access separately for each person. That way, I know who did all that damage. In the end with a little extra work, I feel more secure by using Authenticated Users.


    If this helps.
    step 1 create non-microsoft account and without email and address without admin rights
    step 2 share a drive or folder to specific user account (if Everyone is listed, remove it)
    step 3 set security > add Authenticated Users (if more than 1 account) or add specific users
    step 3a remove Everyone from list
    step 3b uncheck full control and write for all items listed except SYSTEM and Admin account.
    step 4 right click Start > Computer Management > System Tools > Shared Folders > Shares ... to verify settings and change anything else. You can also see the number of connections to each share here.
