Hey guys,

I am trying to set up a network for my wife's office, where there are 3 computers. What do I need to do (and I know it's easy) to set it up where they can drag/drop files across the network to each computer?

Also, how can I set it up where they can use one central scanner/printer combo for each computer?

To my knowledge, call computers have Windows 7.

I would just set up Homegroup that would be easier, or you can go the hardway and setup accounts on all computers and get a networkable printer.
