Choose whether you want to share your tablet’s files on the network.

This important choice depends on whether you’re connecting in a public location like a hotel or coffee shop, or in a private setting like your home or office.

Private: If you’re at your home or office, tap Yes, Turn on Sharing and Connect to Devices. That lets you connect with networked printers and swap files with other people on the network.

Public: Because you don’t want strangers to access your files, tap No, Don’t Turn on Sharing or Connect to Devices. That lets you access the Internet, but keeps other people on the network away from your files.

When you finish the steps, Windows connects to the network, and your Internet connection begins flowing.
