    • Click Turn on password protected sharing to require that anyone who will share files or printers on this computer must have a user account and password.
      • If you select this option, whenever someone tries to access a shared folder or printer, his or her user name and password are checked against the accounts on the computer. If an account isn't found or doesn't match exactly, the user is prompted to enter a user name and password.
      • Note: If you select this option, it's easiest if you set up a user¬†account on your computer for each person who you're allowing to access your shared content.
    • Click Turn off password protected sharing to allow other users to access your shared resources without requiring a user name and password.
