    • Right click on the folder you want to share
    • Click on Sharing and Security
    • Under Network Sharing, click "Share this folder on the network"
    • Give it a name
    • On your android phone install a program like ES File Explorer
    • In ES File Explorer, select LAN from the menu
    • Click the three dots > New
    • Domain will be the Windows XP computer name
    • Server will be the Windows XP IP address / the share name so if the computer is 192.168.1.50 and the share is MyStuff it would be 192.168.1.50/MyStuff
    • The username will be the Windows XP username and password
