The Sharing tab is part of the properties dialog box for a folder, but not for files. Also, when the Sharing wizard is disabled, the Share button appears on the toolbar only when you select a single folder. Only the Sharing wizard is capable of making share settings for files and for multiple objects simultaneously.
To create or modify a network share using advanced settings, follow these steps:
1. On the Sharing tab, click Advanced Sharing to display the Advanced Sharing dialog box.
2. Select Share This Folder.
3. Accept or change the proposed share name.
