After creating or joining a homegroup for your Windows 7 home network, you might decide to change which libraries and printers you want to share. Also, although the computer is a member of the homegroup, each individual user on the computer decides which of their libraries to share with the homegroup. Follow these steps to change your Windows 7 home network sharing options.


Open the Windows Control Panel, and then click Network and Internet.

The Network and Internet window appears.


Under HomeGroup, click Choose HomeGroup and Sharing Options.

The HomeGroup window appears.


Under Share Libraries and Printers, select the items you would like to share; deselect any you don’t want to share. Click Save Changes.

The items you can select or deselect include Pictures, Music, Videos, Documents, and Printers.
