Are you ready? Let's read!

When you have two or more computers in your office, you are probably using a local area network to transfer data. However, sometimes at exactly the wrong moment, when you want to share your files with other users, problems arise. For example, you might receive an error that says your folder cannot be shared on Windows 10.

You can try the following solutions to resolve the situation.

Try using the advanced sharing options

To do this, right-click the required folder and select Properties.

Next, go to the Sharing tab, then select Advanced Sharing and check the Share this folder option. Next, go to Permissions and select what type of users your folder will be shared with. You should select All and Full Control and click All.

If you are using a password to enter the system, click Add, then click on Advanced -> Find Now and finally select Authenticated Users. Save your changes, select Full Control, and save your changes again.

If the previous method did not help you access the folder, disable password-protected sharing

Press Windows + R to open Run and enter the following command: control.exe / name Microsoft.NetworkAndSharingCenter / page Advanced, press Enter.

Next, open the Network and Sharing Center section and select Change Advanced Sharing Settings. In the new window, click All Networks, then go to the Sharing with Password Protection section. Select the Turn Off Password Protected Sharing option and just click Save Changes. Restart your computer and check if the problem Folder Can't Be Shared Windows 10 still remains.

Reinstall OS

If none of the above procedures worked for you, and the folder still can't be shared, you can reinstall the operating system. This method involves using the system from scratch, so your problem will be 100% fixed.

However, keep in mind that after you reinstall the system, all your data will be erased. Therefore, do not forget to back up all the data you need.
