Ours is a windows network. There are some systems with Windows 7 and some with Windows XP. Mine is a Windows 7 system. I would like to create a user group so that I can grant it permission to access shared folders.
In the sharing dialogue (Right click -> Properties -> Sharing -> Advanced sharing) I can see option to select users or groups. ("Select users, computers, service accounts, or groups" dialogue ->
Find nowdisplays a list of computers and groups to select. )
Also, I can specify the types of objects I want to look for -> options contains Object types -> users, groups etc.
But there is no option to create a group.
Do I need to create from Control Panel -> Network and Internet ? I read about creating a homegroup but it does not look like what I want -
If your computer belongs to a domain, you can join a homegroup but you can't create one. You can access files and resources on other homegroup computers, but you can't share your own files and resources with the homegroup.
How do I do this? Just want to create a group so as to share files among teammates. Why are simple things done so complex?
