File Sharing: Printers & Files in XP and Vista In this lesson, we show two computers: one running XP and the other Vista. They are both new installs so the settings we change are the default ones you would see if you never touched the networking and sharing settings. We set the computer and workgroup name, check the networking protocols, enable file and printer sharing in both XP and Vista. Then we share a few folders and printers on each computer.
