How to Share a Folder with All Users on Windows 10 PC

Windows 10 distributes a connection to every user on a device. Typically, this means creating multiple profiles for each person who manages a specific PC. And each of these profiles only has access to a specific set of folders and applications made available by the system administrator.

If you want to change this and have administrator access, you can choose to share individual files and folders with anyone or enable sharing by default. Copies of birth certificates and passports, for example, are handy when accessible to family members. To get to this point, we need to give each family member access to the shared folder.

As an administrator, you can do this, while still maintaining granular control over what other users can do while in the folder. You can allow them to view the files, copy the files, or edit the files. It’s really up to you.
