  1. Sharing Icons on Folders and Files not Shared


    I just upgraded my account to a paid 100gb plan Since then, one folder out of many is appearing with the following image:When I check the details of the folder and files under it, I see "THIS ITEM IS NOT SHARED". I just want to make sure these files are definitely not shared and correct this icon issue. Thanks.

    :)

    Sharing a folder

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    I appreciate your time and patience to work on this issue.

    To know the username of your computer, please follow the steps mentioned below:

    1. Type Command prompt in the search bar.
    2. Right click on the Command prompt icon and select Run as Administrator.
    3. Type whoami in Command Prompt window and press Enter.
    4. You will find the username of the computer, use the username and your password to access the file from the shared folder.

    However, if the above steps didn’t help, I suggest you to turn off password protected sharing and check if that helps.

    To turn off password protected sharing, please follow the steps mentioned below on your laptop:

    1. Press and hold Windows + R key on the keyboard.
    2. Type Control and click on
      OK
      .
    3. Click on Network and Sharing Center.
    4. Click on Change advance sharing settings.
    5. Under All Networks, click on
      Turn off password protected sharing
      .

    Hope it helps.

    Please reply to this post for further assistance, we will be glad to help you.

    shared icons

    Hello Will, my name is Alexander. I'm an Independent Advisor and I'm happy to assist you!

    If you share a file or a folder, then the shared icon shows up. However, if you haven’t shared these folders, I recommend that you follow the steps below:

    - Go to the Search bar to open Computer Management.

    - Go to System Tools on the left pane, then Shared Folders > Shares.

    - You will find a list of shared folders on the right panel.

    - Right click on the folders which you want to stop from sharing and choose Stop Sharing.

    - Be careful and not to make changes with folders with dollar symbol, because they are default shares of Windows folder.

    If you need further information, refer to the support article: ‘Changes to file sharing over a network in Windows 10’, the section ‘How do I stop sharing files or folders’.

    Best regards,

    Alexander B.
