Sharing Windows 7 Directories Without Password Like Windows XP
One of the biggest complaints I heard about with regards to Windows Vista and Windows 7 is that you can't share directories at home without using a login and a password. We've all taken Windows XP's ability to easily share files and folders without using any passwords at all. Most of the time that's sufficient, because we are only sharing between our family members. Good news is that you can do the same with Windows 7; you just have to take one extra step--"Turn off password protected sharing".
That option is available in the "Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network and Sharing Center\Advanced sharing settings". You can get there using the following sequence: Control Panel -> Network and Internet -> Homegroup -> Change advanced sharing settings...
After turning off the password protected sharing, click the "Save changes" button to apply the change.
