How to share folders in Windows 95 without a mouse or complete keyboard

I am working on a laser cutter machine that has a touchscreen interface and a minimized keyboard interface with no numeric pad or FUNCTION KEYS. It is running Windows 95. I need to be able to share folders on this machine. I cannot right-click using and of the "Mouse Keys" options in with the accessibility options in the control panel . The mouse icon for MOUSE KEYS shows up in the task tray but I cannot activate them because of the minimal keyboard. is there another way to share folders with having to right click?

Shift+F10 brings the context menu, just give focus to the folder you want to share and pres both keys, then go to the Sharing option.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Yes 'net' was an accepted command line. It referred me to nethelp. When I ran nethelp, share or anything remotely associated with sharing folders was not an option

I don't recall if windows 95 had a mouse driven keyboard but if it did it would be in control panel/accessibility
