“Wizards” are for noobs. People who know computers don’t need to be walked through steps using one. Here’s how to disable the annoying File Sharing Wizard in Windows 7 and Vista.
1. Click on the Start orb then Control Panel.
2. Select Appearance and Personalization > Folder Options.
3. Click on the View tab.
4. Uncheck the Use Sharing Wizard (Recommended) box.
Now when you right-click a folder and select Share, you will be taken to the Sharing tab under the folder Properties. The Share option will also be grayed out.Last modified March 4, 2012
