Now to access files on your PC from outside, you must copy the data that you want to share to your public folder. On a Windows PC, you will find public folders in C> Users> Public. Whatever you store here can be accessed from outside by anyone connected to the same network as the PC.
Now there are ways to share files and folders that are in different locations with other systems on the same network as well. To do this,
- Right-click on the file or folder you want to share and select “Properties.”
- Now click on the Share tab at the top and then click the Share button on this tab.
- There will now be a drop-down menu in the next window. Select “Everyone” from this list.
- Click the Share button, and you’re done.
- Now you must enter your PC login credentials every time you access this public file from a different system. You can choose to disable it by making changes to the Advanced Sharing settings.
- Search Advanced Sharing in the search bar and open the search results that appear.
- In this setting window, under the All Networks section, you will see the Password Protected Sharing option. Here select the “Disable password protected sharing” option and click Save changes.
With this, all files that you want to share with other systems using the same network will be possible. But how do you access this public file on your Smartphone? You need an application called FE File Explorer.
- Click this link and open the FE File Explorer page on the Google Play Store.
- Click on the install button and install the Application on your Smartphone.
- Connect your PC and Smartphone to the same network.
- Open the Application then tap the small plus button in the lower right corner of your screen.
