My System Specs

Default

yep enable file sharing = Control panel > Network and Sharing Center > advanced sharing settings > Turn on file and printer sharing and turn off password protected sharing. Just be aware that there is a "home or work" and a "public" profile. Make sure you are making changes to the "home and work" profile.

Then for the folders or drives you want to share over then network right click > sharing tab > share > type in EVERYONE and hit add.

Everything else, good (I think). The share button on my drive is grayed out.

Sorry, for a whole drive you have to right click > sharing > advanced sharing and enable it there.
