How to share a folder in Windows Server 2022

Today the use of the computer is really wide, since it has become a working environment for many people, but also a place in which to store personal information and documents..

 

 

Windows Server 2022 is composed of numerous roles and functions to allow interaction between the server and the computers and users of the domain. One of the most popular options is to create a shared folder to be a central point of access. In this way, several people from different computers will have access to all the information that the shared folder contains.
