Join James Gonzalez for an in-depth discussion in this video Configure additional folder options, part of Windows 10: Configure, Secure, and Manage Data.
- In this lesson, I review some additional folder options…that you'll find new in Windows 10.…So to access your folder options,…go to your File Explorer,…click on the View tab, and in the Options dropdown,…choose Change folder and search options.…Previously, I reviewed the General tab and the View tab,…and there's not a lot that's new here…from previous versions of Window,…but one thing that is new that I want to point out…in this lesson is the Sharing Wizard.…By default, that's turned on.…There's a checkmark next to that,…so make sure that your Sharing Wizard is enabled,…and then click OK to close the dialog.…
And the easiest way to demonstrate this…is to simply right click on the folder…that you want to share using the wizard.…So I'll choose my Documents folder,…and notice that there's a new option here…called Share with.…I can stop sharing, or I can share it with any users…that are now added to my system.…Later on, when we set up home groups,…there'll also be some home group options here.…You can also have other members of your home group…
Using the tools that come with a standard Windows build, James Gonzalez shows how to configure data storage (on client devices and on OneDrive), secure data with good authentication practices, encrypt data with EFS and BitLocker, and manage data access to shared folders, printers, and hard drives. He also shows how to set up file sharing for an organization using HomeGroup networks and NTFS permissions.
