Command Line Way

List All Shares

net share

Stop Sharing a Folder

net share sharename /delete

Stop Sharing All Folders

Write a script, and double-click it!

The following script will stop sharing sharename and Share Name 2. Replace these with your own share names. Save as stopsharing.bat.

@echo off
net share sharename /delete
net share "Share Name 2" /delete

Note how share names with spaces in them must be enclosed by quotes.

You can use Network Scanner. Tiny portable software, just input the range of ips you want to see.

SoftPerfect Network Scanner is a free multi-threaded IP, NetBIOS and SNMP scanner with a modern interface and many advanced features. It is intended for both system administrators and general users interested in computer security. The program pings computers, scans for listening TCP/UDP ports and displays which types of resources are shared on the network (including system and hidden).

In addition, it allows you to mount shared folders as network drives, browse them using Windows Explorer, filter the results list and more. SoftPerfect Network Scanner can also check for a user-defined port and report back if one is open. It can also resolve host names and auto-detect your local and external IP range. It supports remote shutdown and Wake-On-LAN.
