Hello, maybe I am Google incompetent here but I cannot find an answer to this.

Is there a way to gain full read/write permissions to computer folders within the Windows 7 Homegroup?

The reason I want to do this is because sometimes I am dragging and dropping files back and forth between computers. Currently all I can do is PULL files from PC to PC, but I cannot PUSH files onto another computer. By PULL I mean "Open" and then save to the current PC or "Copy" to the PC I am on, and by PUSH I mean Copy TO another computer.

It would be very nice if I could drop files both ways from one computer as opposed to concurrently using both.

You sure that you are talking about Homegroup?

All computers are Windows 7?

I am talking about homegroup, setup with the homegroup wizard and the homegroup password and all that.

I have 3 computers in this situation, one is a desktop running Win7 Pro, another is a laptop with Win7 Pro also, and the last is an Asus EeePC with Win7 Starter.

I have windows 7 and Windows XP

Are you talking about Share folders between the windows work group.

for example

I can modify Folder (shard folder with full permission) in windows xp via Laptop on the network

All you need to do is check Network users have the right to modify content under security tab

I think you want to access computers though the home group wizard. I would try this first bigalexe

Hope this helps
