How to see all folders on Windows 8 PC that have been shared over my network?

How can I find all of the folders on a Windows 8 PC that are shared with other computers/devices on the network?

It looks like you have a good answer already, but here's a link to the Windows 8 support site in case you need it later on:


1. Open File Explorer.

2. Go to Network and double click on your computer. You should then see the shared files. 

3. Click on an individual file, then click on the “Properties” icon in the taskbar at the top of the window for more information and sharing options.


You can also use Computer Management for more detailed information, including which users are connecting to each shared file.
