Share files between Windows machines and Macs

Tech trick on filesharingSome businesses may have workplaces where workers are using a combination of Windows-based machines and Macs. But did you know you can share files between the two platforms?


First of all, in your OSX machine, (Mac), you’ll need to go the Sharing preference tab in the System Preferences Menu.


After that, you need to select the File Sharing option. Then, you will see a “plus” symbol underneath the Share Folders column, which will allow you to share all the folders you want between the two systems.


Then, you need to click the Options button. You will need to click the “Share files and folders using AFP” button, and then select users will have access to these files.
