Share Folders in linux for Windows

We can share folders in linux for windows user to access. We can create a share for windows users.

To do so first of all install samba.

In Ubuntu install it by opening a terminal
sudo apt-get install samba

Start it by
sudo /etc/init.d/samba start

You don't need to do this after restart as it gets started automatically on boot.

Now create a password for your user
sudo smbpasswd -a

Share any folder and on windows computer when accessing the share use the above username and newly created password.
