How to Add a Security Tab in Windows XP

Microsoft Windows operating systems such as Windows XP feature an easy-to-configure and use network file-sharing capability. Windows XP Home (and Windows XP Professional outside a domain environment) both begin with the "simple file sharing" feature enabled. Among other things, this hides the Security tab when viewing file or folder properties in Windows Explorer, preventing you from seeing permissions on an NTFS volume. When the Simple File Sharing feature is enabled, users can share files over the network and either allow or disallow other users to modify the files in the network share. Disable the Simple File Sharing feature in Windows XP to access a network share Security tab, where you can configure granular user.


1.         Click the "Start" button on the Windows XP  taskbar, and click "Control Panel"

2.         Click "Appearance and Themes" and then click the "Folder Options" item in the "http://vtechsquad.com/microsoft-windows-xp.html" page.

3.         If the "Appearance and Themes" item is not available in the "Control Panel" window, click the "Switch to Category View" link in the upper left corner of the "Control Panel" window, and the "Appearance and Themes" item will appear.

 4.         Click the "View" tab in the "Folder Options" window, and scroll down to the bottom of the "Advanced Settings" list.

5.         Click to clear the "Use Simple File Sharing (Recommended)" check box, click the "Apply" button and then click the "OK" button.
