So to see and unhide the Security tab, just use the following steps:

  • Launch Windows Explorer or My Computer.
  • Click on the Tools at the menu bar, then click on Folder Options.
  • Click on View tab.
  • In the Advanced Settings section at the bottom of the list, uncheck and unselect (clear the tick) on the Use simple file sharing (Recommended) check box.
  • Click OK.
some tips

  • Simple File Sharing is a feature introduced in Microsoft Windows XP. Simple File Sharing removes some file sharing security options available in other versions of Windows. This helps Windows XP administrators quickly set up folder shares
  • Enabling Simple File Sharing prevents the ability to assign user-level passwords to shares. When Simple File Sharing is enabled on a computer, remote users will not be prompted for a password when accessing that computer's shares.
  • If the Windows XP Professional computer is part of a Windows domain rather than a Windows workgroup, this process for enabling or disabling Simple File Sharing has no effect. Simple File Sharing always remains disabled for computers joined to domains.
