I am a newbe to the macbook pro world and have 2 questions pertaining to the Finder feature. I check around the forum and online already and couldnt find these questions so can someone please assist and be gentle also.. 1) Files Sharing right now I have 2 other computers for my family, a desktop and another laptop, both windows running. I set up the file sharing on the macbook pro to work with these two computers. When I am on either of these two windows computers I can see my macbook pro in their shared network section. But my problem is when I am on my macbook pro, in the finder I see nothing that says "Shared", aka I see neither of these two systems, yet they are on my network. Can I not see non-mac pcs on the finder "shared" section. 2) Application In the "Places" dropdown on Finder, I see various quicklinks including my specific Home folder. In my specific folder I see are the various subfolders like desktop, documents, downloads, applications, etc. When I click on the applications subfolder here, there is nothing inside it. Yet under the "Places" dropdown in the Finder there is an applications quicklink and when I click on it I see all my applications. Are these both not the same folder. Please assist.
