You have two ways to stop sharing the digital media that is stored in the shared folders on your computer. You can choose to:

  • Share files or folders with Nobody

  • Share files or folders with Specific people

To stop sharing media in shared folders

  1. Open Windows Explorer, and then click the shared folder that contains the files you want to stop sharing.

  2. After selecting the shared folder, you can either:

    • Right-click the shared folder, point to Share with, and then click Nobody to stop sharing all of the files that are stored in that folder.

    • Right-click individual files within the folder, point to Share with, click Specific people, click the name of a user account, click Remove, and then click Share to save your changes.


      You can also use SHIFT+ENTER or CTRL+ENTER to select multiple files in a shared folder.
