Allowing access to home computer from remote computer

I have a wireless router for my home desktop computer and a wireless capable laptop computer. I can access the laptop from my desktop and add or change files on it. I can see the files on my desktop from my laptop, but I can't open or change them. How do I "allow" access from my laptop to my desktop?

first, UNSHARE whatever is currently being shared on the desktop.

Now find the folder(s) you wish to share, start the sharing setup and be sure to [x]
allow changes / modifications.

Now I really feel dumb. I didn't know anything about a "sharing setup" until I right-clicked on "My Documents", clicked on "Properties" and noticed a tab called "Sharing" with an option to allow network users to change files. Duh! Thanks.

you know what - - until we experience a problem and start asking questions,
we don't even start the learning process.

Glad that worked out for you :)
