You cannot share your files on a network without a password, but you don’t want to type in a password every time you boot your computer, do you?
Here are tips on how to work around that.
- Open the start menu. (the little orb at the bottom left of your screen)
- Type in control userpasswords2 and then hit enter.
- When that opens you will get a window called User Accounts (this is NOT the same as the user accounts control panel). UNCHECK the box that says “Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer” you will be asked to type in your password twice, do so.
- Now open the power options (Windows button / control panel). To find the option easier, just click classic view, and it will have a picture of a battery and a plug.
- Hit change when the computer sleeps on the left panel, and in the next screen, hit change advanced power settings.
- Once in there, there will be many roots. Hit the plus sign next to additional settings and hit the plus sign next to require a password on wakeup. Under setting, select no.
- Click OK.
- Now if you want to share a file, right click it. Hit the properties, and go to sharing.
