When I open Networking I can see the other PC name appear.

My PC is Windows 7 and the other is Windows 8.

I want to see the shared folder(s) on that PC but I cannot.

Why is that? How can I connect?

You need to turn on File and Printer Sharing on the PC you are trying to connect to:

  • Press the windows key
  • Type advanced sharing
  • Press enter
  • Select the radio button Turn on file and printer sharing
  • Press Save Changes

If you get a prompt from UAC, click Continue
