    How to you log into another user's folders?

    In Windows 7 it seems ask you to log into with user/pass (or no pass) and then you get to see all that user's folders.

    In Windows Vista, when you click the Network computer, it gives you the Public folder.

    Hello rasmasyean and welcome to the forums

    It all depends on how you've got your network sharing settings configured in control panel It is possible to do both in Windows 7 and Vista.
