Cách mở network and sharing center



I can’t seem to recall where I saw it, but I read a reviews last week of the Windows 7 beta in which the reviewer described Windows 7 as Windows Vista with a fresh coat of paint. In some areas this is a fairly accurate description, especially if you are looking at some of the pre beta builds. Gradually though, Microsoft has been making changes to Windows 7 that make it look a little bit less like Windows Vista.

One of the newly redesigned features is the Network và Sharing Center, which was first introduced in Windows Vista. In this article, I want to show you around the Network and Sharing Center, và let you decide for yourself whether it is new & improved, or simply Windows Vista with a new paint job.

The Network & Sharing Center

You can access the Network & Sharing Center by opening the Windows 7 Control Panel & clicking on the Network & Internet link, followed by the Network và Sharing Center link. You can see what the Network and Sharing Center looks lượt thích in Figure A.

This is what the Windows 7 Network & Sharing Center looks like.

As you can see in the figure above, the Network and Sharing Center looks a lot lượt thích it did in Windows Vista. If you want lớn compare the two versions, then check out the Windows Vista Network & Sharing Center in Figure B below.

This is the Windows Vista Network và Sharing Center.

The first change that I really lượt thích is the View Your Active Network option. As you can see in the figure, the Windows 7 version clearly displays which network you are connected to. In this case, it’s a tên miền network named Production.com.

If you look a toward the bottom of the screen, you will notice a liên kết labeled Connect to a Network. If you click on this link, Windows will display a dialog box that wells you which network you are connected to lớn (just like the main screen does). More importantly though, this dialog box contains a change button. Clicking the Change button gives you the option of connecting khổng lồ any other network connection that you have defined.

Sharing and Discovery

If you look at Figure B, you can see that the Windows Vista Network và Sharing Center listed all of your Sharing and Discovery settings on the main screen. These settings have been moved in Windows 7. Lớn access them, you must click the Change Advanced Sharing options.

If you look at Figure C, you can see that Windows 7 maintains three separate network profiles (Home or Work, Public, and Domain), & maintains separate sharing settings for each of the profiles. Another thing that I like about this screen is that it clearly identifies which profile Windows is currently using, so that you will know which of the sharing settings currently apply.

The Advanced Sharing Settings screen provides you with access to three separate network sharing profiles.

Home Groups

In Windows 7, Microsoft seems khổng lồ be placing a greater emphasis on peer networking, & has started to acknowledge that trang chủ networks are becoming much more common. If you look at Figure A, you will notice an option labeled Choose Homegroup & Sharing Options.

This feature isn’t really all that useful on domain name networks, but the basic idea behind it is that if you are connected to a workgroup, you can create a homegroup, which is used for sharing documents and other resources with other computers on the network. You can see what the HomeGroup screen looks like in Figure D.

Homegroups make peer networking easy.

Vista Leftovers

It’s still too early khổng lồ know for sure what the Windows and Sharing Center will look lượt thích when Windows 7 is eventually released. At this point though, there are several elements that seem khổng lồ be identical lớn their Windows Vista counterparts. These components include the Change Adapter Settings, Fix a Network Problem, and the cài đặt a New Connection or Network functions.


A lot of the changes to the Network và Sharing center are cosmetic. Even so, I have found the Network và Sharing Center to lớn be easier to use than the Windows Vista version.
