I want to have the three desktop computers in my office share some documents.
All three computers receive there internet through a cisco linksys wireless n gigabit router.
Two of the three computers are running windows 7 and third computer is running windows vista.
On one windows 7 computer I turned on homegroups.
Then I created a folder named “stuff I want to share” on my desktop. (and set the folder as share with homegroup read/write)
Odon’t know what to do next.
I can’t find “stuff I want to share” folder on the other computers.
Thank you
steven

As long as you're on the same network, all you should need to do with Windows 7 is right click on the folder that you want to share and set it from there.

If you already have it setup then you should only need to create a shortcut for that folder on each of the computer's desktops.

From the Vista computer go to the start button and click Network,
continue down the path to the folder you want.
Something like "The Computer's Name", Users, "User Name", then finally Desktop.
The folder you created should be there. Right click it and chose "Send to → Desktop (Create Shortcut)"
On the Windows 7 computer click on the Start button, then Computer. On the left side of that screen will be the link to Network.
Follow the same directions as above after clicking Network
