when I do, I can see the documents library associated with the TestOut Student user on the other Windows 10 system. Now, because we are looking at a library, you'll notice that I have two different paths that I can access on the other system, the first oneis sequel and /users/rtracy/documents, as well as C:/user/rtracy/ onedrive/documents. For example, if I wanted to read the Ipsum document, this is an xps document, I can access it over the network connection from the user's documents library on the other system. Now, in addition to the default libraries that are being shared currently you can also create other folders and files within the file system and share those with the HomeGroup, even though they're not part of a particular library, for example, let's go over to this pc, then go on to the C drive and let's create a new folder, and let's name this folder Shared, and let's put some content into Shared. Let's create a new bitmap image, call it My Artwork, because I am such a fantastic artist. I'm going to right click on My Artwork and open it, with the paint program, and let's put some beautiful artwork here in this file and save the changes and close paint. So, I've got a folder here, it's named Shared, it's got some content in it that I want to share with the other users who are members of the HomeGroup, but right now they can't actually access it, to share it with them, I right click the shared folder, and then I go down to the share with link, and then I'm going to come down here and click on specific people. From the drop down list, I have several options, I can either share this folder with specific people, I can share it with everyone, or I can just share it with other users who are members of the HomeGroup. To do this, I click on the HomeGroup option, click on add, and then I can specify what permissions I'm going to allow other members of the HomeGroup to have to this folder, right now, by default is set to just read, so other users in the HomeGroup would be able to access the image file I just created, and they would be able to look at it, but they would not be able to modify it in any way. We can change that by changing the permission level to read, write, click on share, so, now, the shared folder has been shared with the HomeGroup. Let's switch over to the other Windows 10 system and access this folder through the HomeGroup.Open up file explorer on this system, we'll access the HomeGroup, and this time we want to accessthe R Tracy user, that's the user account on the other system, and notice that in addition to the documents, music, pictures, and videos libraries on the other system that are currently being shared,I also have the folder named Shared, that we created on that other system, and shared with the HomeGroup, notice that these are all listed as libraries, whereas this folder is listed as a share. I'll double click on it. There's the bitmap file that we created. I can right click on it and let's open it with paint on this system and because I set the permissions to read, write, I should have the ability to actually edit this file and save the changes to it over the network. Let's verify that by switching back to the first system. Let's go into shared and we can already tell by looking at the thumbnail, that the changes that I made from the

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
