Sharing files between a Windows 7 PC and an iMac
I was pleasantly surprised that with some setup on the Windows 7 PC and a couple of commands on the iMac the sharing of files was a breeze.
|Step 1: Make sure you have a work group defined for your home network on the Windows 7 PC.
|Step 2: Setup file sharing on your Windows 7 PC.

|Step 3: Setup the share on your iMac. Use Command K then enter "smb:\\workgroup\pc_name"|
|Step 4: On the Network window make sure you have the same workgroup name entered here so that it matches your Windows 7 PC network workgroup.|
|Now when you open Finder on you Mac you will see your computer on left navigation bar listed under "Shared".|
