How to list network shares and users in Windows?

Posted on

QUESTION :

With “net share” I can get a list of shares I’m connected to but how can I get a listing that shows the user info used to connect to a share, if the user is not the same as the logged in user in Windows?

ANSWER :

Does going to computermanagement > System Tools > Shared Folders give you what you want?
