    Hi

    Is there anyway to get the shared folder icon back in Windows 10? What I mean is in the past if you shared a folder the icon would change to a folder with a hand under it. Is there anyway to do that? At the moment if I forget which folders are shared I have to browse the network and see all the shares. I want it so whenever I use explorer any folders that are shared will show up with the shared icon.

    Thanks

    Hello and welcome to the forum.
    Boy.... don't get me started. One of the things that I missed most from the XP days. I ranted endlessly about it with absolutely no one listening, so.... I finally got over it and went on with life.
    Now I just open a command prompt or a powershell console session and type
    net share
    hit enter
    That shows me the Share Name and the path to the resource.
    A poor substitute I know, but..... life goes on. :)
    Regards
    Randy
