    • To change the folder to a shared folder (Only you and people that you select can view photos and files in this top-level folder. For each person that you allow to access the top-level folder, you can assign the role of reader or editor.) , do one or more of the following: 
      • To share the folder with everyone in your Windows Live network (A group of people someone communicates and shares with on Windows Live. Someone's network includes people they've added to their profile, to their Messenger contacts, or both. People in someone's network can see information about their latest activities in the what's new list, and may see other information, depending on permissions settings.) , in the Public and networks section, select the My network check box.

      • To share the folder with people who aren't on your contact list, in the Individuals section, in the Enter a name or e-mail address box, type the e-mail addresses of the people that you want to share with. Separate each e-mail address with a comma. 
      • To share the folder with people on your contact list, in the Individuals section, click Select from your contact list, and then select the check boxes next to the contacts who you want to share the folder with. 
      • If you've previously sent a link to the folder and allowed recipients to view the folder without signing in with their Windows Live ID, clear the Don't require recipients to sign in with Windows Live ID check box to require them to sign in before they can view the folder again.
