View All Your Shared Vista Folders In One Window

The Shared Folders snap-in is one utility used for managing your shared folders in Windows Vista. You can access the snap-in through the Computer Management console.

Click Start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, and then Computer Management (if you are in Classic view).

Once you click on the Shared Folders snap-in within the Computer Management console, three folders are displayed in the Details pane: Shared, Sessions, and Open files.

If you frequently access the Shared Folders snap-in, there is a much faster way of opening it (assuming that the Run command is available on the Start menu). Simply click Start, click Run, type fsmgmt.msc, and click OK. The Shared Folders snap-in will immediately appear.
