    I want to stop sharing my user's folder on the network, but when I go to "share with" > "nobody" it gives me the error "windows can't stop sharing selected folder". When I try to change ANY sharing options it gives me the error "This folder cannot be shared".

    What's going on? all I wanna do is stop sharing my whole user's folder on the network ><

    EDIT: Ok, I figured out that I had to set the share settings on the network window, which removed the User's folder. However, now that it's gone I want to repeat the process with sharing something on the network and removing it again. So with the users folder gone, I go to the explorer to share the users folder with my homegroup, it still says "this folder cannot be shared". How would I put that back on the homegroup network? (I know it sounds crazy, but I'm just fiddling with the networking end of things)
