    Sharing a specific folder on windows 10 on the network without requiring login credentials and also without sharing the entire C:\Users folder

    Hi

    I am trying to share a specific folder lying my desktop over the network, trying to make that specific folder accessible to anyone who wants to access it without requiring them to login using the credentials of an existing user on the host PC.

    However,

    1. even after turning off password protected sharing in "Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network and Sharing Center\Advanced sharing settings", login credentials are still being asked on the other computer (mac) on the network.

    2. suppose I login using my host PC login credentials, the entire C:\Users folder is exposed rather than the specific shared folder.

    How can I get to share the specific folder

    1. without login details

    AND

    2. also without exposing the C:\Users folder

    List of solutions gone though but did not work:

    The C:\Users folder is shared when any sub folders from C:\Users\<username>\ is shared | Microsoft Docs

    How to share any folder without password in Windows 8/10 in a home network if a Microsoft account is involved?

    Network share to require login

    Alright what i am trying to do is have a password, or login required to access some shared folders on a computer. All computers are using XP Pro SP2, now i have had situations in the past were i try to access a shared folder over the network on a laptop and it asks for a username and password before it will let me access it. This is what i am trying to setup. Even if i was able to assign the folder permissions for a specific user account.

    Any help?

    Where to find login credentials for network folder sharing.

    Network share to require login

    Yeah iv been through all that and i cant add a user from another machine.

    Right now i have a local account (on the computer with the shares) that has full control alowed, than when i try to access the folder from another machine i get a "\\servername\foldername is not accessable. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Please contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. Logon failure: Unknown username or bad password"


    I just want it to prompt for username/password credentials when i try to access it from another machine.
