Where do I do that in XPHome?

It's not where I'ld expect it to be, namely Folder options --> view, which is where it is in Pro.

BTW, I've searched the forums for something alike this question, but only came up with unrelated items or the FTP-part.

To turn Simple File Sharing on or off in Windows XP Professional, follow these steps:
1. Double-click My Computer on the desktop.
2. On the Tools menu, click Folder Options.
3. Click the View tab, and then select the Use Simple File Sharing (Recommended) check box to turn on Simple File Sharing. (Clear this check box to turn off this feature.)


I've already said this isn't in WinXP Home... so then it's not available?

No, advanced file sharing is only in Professional Edition. But try boot in safe mode, login as administrator and look in Folder prop., there should be more options.

Don't quote me on that one but I don't think XP Home supports the "non-Simple Folder Sharing".

You can't shut off Simple File Sharing in XP Home. You can quote me on that.

Alternatively, you could just use TweakNT and save yourself the effort of reinstalling. Still, a somewhat exaggerated workaround if you ask me, potentially invalidating a legitimate copy of Windows...

I tried this once but all I got was a timebombed Windows install.

If you just want to change the permissions on a folder/file, you could open a command prompt and use cacls... for example:

Code:
cacls MyFolderName /e /g "User Account":F


will grant "User Account" full access to MyFolderName. There's more info on using cacls here[/code]

You can also use File Manager for comfortably setting permissions on XP Home. Grab the NT4 SP6a, extract it with the /x switch & use winfile.exe in that folder.
