  • 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 and the share is MyStuff it would be
  • The username will be the Windows XP username and password

Thank you very much
