Sharing Documents with (or Hiding Them from) Other Users
Although you’ll want to keep most of your documents to yourself, it’s conceivable that you’ll want other users to be able to see and work with some files. For example, you might scan in some family photos that you want everyone to see or you might store some music that you want other folks to hear.
In Windows 8, no user can access another user’s documents directly. However, it’s possible to change this and allow other users access to some—or all—of your folders or files, as well as control what they can do with those folders or files. To see how, follow these steps:
1. In the Start screen, click Desktop and then click File Explorer in the taskbar to open your main user-account folder.
