Microsoft HomeGroup allows users on the same home network to easily view, share and even edit files and folders. This video from Tutorial Techie will show you how to establish a HomeGroup within your existing home network and how to share files between computers using HomeGroup.

Quick Steps for Sharing Files/Folders Between Two Windows 7 Computers Using Windows HomeGroup

• Go to the Start Menu and select your Control Panel
• Select "Network and Internet" and then click on "Choose HomeGroup and Sharing Options"
• Leave any previous HomeGroups if you wish by clicking on "Leave the HomeGroup"
• If you receive an error message that HomeGroup is unavailable, change your network to a Home network (directions below)
• Select the things (Documents, Pictures, Videos, Printers, Music) that you would like to share with your HomeGroup
• Make note of your HomeGroup password or change it if you wish (directions to change the password are below)
• On the subsequent computers, open up your HomeGroup Settings menu as above and close out of the menu to create a new HomeGroup
• Once the existing HomeGroup refreshes on your screen, click "Join Now"
• Select the things (Documents, Pictures, Videos, Printers, Music) that you would like to share with your HomeGroup
• Enter the HomeGroup password and select "Finish"
• To share a document with your HomeGroup, save it in one of the Libraries that you opted to share
• To access a shared document, open your Library and then select either "Network" or "HomeGroup" on the left hand side to view all of the computers on your HomeGroup
• Then select the computer and user who is sharing the document you would like to access
• If you'd like to give other computers the ability to both access and modify your documents, open your Library, click on "Share With..." and then select "HomeGroup (Read/Write)"
