    I can't complete the process for this because it asks for a password, and I don't have any passwords set for either of these machines??

    Hi,

    Did you followed the above steps? Until which step you have followed and on which step it is asking for password?

    1) The 'Computer' icon does not appear on the Win7 Desktop by default; instructions for enabling it in Display Properties should be included if it's going to be referenced for newbs. In my honest opinion.

    2) The screenshots for steps 1 and 3 (as well as the two for step 6) in the original answer are missing, and all that appears for them are 'red-x' placeholders.

    Works find on a LAN; Cannot get a web site mapped - says "the folder you entered appears to be invalid. Please enter another." yet the folder name entered works fine on my XP machine - is this a bug in Windows 7 - 64 bit - Professional?

    Not to be disrespectful but jai_hanuman has not been very clear in his post. First and most important, the directions are based on Windows Xp not Windows 7. An obvious fact of that is Win7 does not have a TOOLS MENU. There are no menus in the Explorer. The weird part of this post if the fact that the only working image is actually from Vista or Win7, just not the directions.

    However, yo ucan still follow his given directions to get to the appropraite finish line. Just food for thought- might be a good idea to write it yourself next time instead of copying from another website. Acting smart helps no one and creates CompUSA workers. Thanks you.

    Hi cstargrove,

    Windows 7 has a Menu Bar, but it will be hidden. You have to press ALT button in the Explorer, then it will be visible. Or click on Organize and then go to Layout and then select Menu Bar. Now, the Menu Bar will be visible permanently until you make it hidden.
