How to recognize the shared folders in Explorer?


Recommended Posts

Here's the "official" answer from Microsoft as to why the shared folders do not have a separate icon:


If you share an entire drive, the icon does change - it's the same icon used in Vista for shared folders and drives. As the icon is there, you can manually change the icon for your shared folders, but I can see where this would be a huge inconvenience if you are sharing multiple folders.
