Turn On or Off File and Printer Sharing in Windows 11

File and printer sharing is the ability of a computer running Windows to share a folder or attached printer with other computers on the same network.

  • File sharing allows you to make files and folders in a shared folder accessible to others on the same network to view, copy, or modify.
  • Printer sharing allows you to make an attached printer available to other computer users on the same network.

Windows creates a separate network profile for each network you use. You can turn on or off file and printer sharing separately for each Domain, Private, and Public network profile type.

This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off file and printer sharing on your Windows 11 PC.
