    Unable to Search Network Shared Folders Windows 10 1809


    Hello,


    When using the start menu to search (Cortana) I am unable to see any searches from network shared drives. They are mapped properly. Everything I've read is either outdated or doesn't give a clear answer or solution to this problem. I just need to know if there is a way to enable the ability to search network drives from the start menu or if there is a good work around for this. I have a handful of clients that are moving from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and they do not want to lose this feature if at all possible.


    Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


    Thanks.

    :)

    ?? How do I PW protect Folders in windows

    hmmm?
    Sharing files and folders overview You can share the files and folders stored on your computer, on a network, and on the Web. The method you choose depends on whom you want to share files with, and what computer they will use to access the files.

    When you share files or folders, they are not as protected as they are when you do not share them. People with access to your computer or your network might be able to read, copy, or change files that are in a shared folder. You should always be aware that the files and folders that you share are available to other people and be sure to monitor your shared files and folders on a regular basis.

    Important

    If your computer is not joined to a domain, you can use the Network Setup Wizard to automatically turn file and printer sharing on or off. To start the Network Setup Wizard, click Start, click Control Panel, click Network and Internet Connections, and then click Network Setup Wizard.
    If you both use the same computer

    You can put the files you want to share in the Shared Documents folder. Files stored in the Shared Documents folder or its subfolders are always available to other users on your computer.

    Step-by-step procedure
    Note

    If you are connected to a network domain, the Shared Documents, Shared Pictures, and Shared Music folders are not available.
    If both computers are on the same network

    You can share a folder or drive on your computer with others on the network. You can also control whether the files in the shared folder can be modified by other users.

    If your computer is connected to a network domain, use this procedure:

    Step-by-step procedure
    If your computer is connected to a workgroup, use this procedure:

    Step-by-step procedure
    Note

    If you are connected to a network domain, you will need to set the Access control for the folder or drive after sharing it. For more information, go to To set, view, change, or remove file and folder permissions.
    If you want to share your files online

    You can publish pictures and documents on the Web using the Web Publishing Wizard. The files will be stored in a private, online folder that you manage.

    Step-by-step procedure

    If you don't want others to access your files

    You can prevent other users from accessing your folders and the files they contain. When your computer is connected to a domain, this is called setting permissions for your file or folder. When your computer is connected to a workgroup, this is called making your folders private.

    If your computer is connected to a network domain, use this procedure:

    Step-by-step procedure
    If your computer is connected to a workgroup, use this procedure:

    Step-by-step procedure

    Share Files and Folders Over a Network in Windows 10


    Hi Brink great tutorial as usual.

    I could not help but notice in step 1 you say to enable " Function Discovery Resource Publication "

    In most of the posts I have read on Ten Forums they also suggest to enable " Function Discovery Provider Host "

    Are you suggesting that Function Discovery Provider Host is not necessary.
