Is there a way to allow unrestricted access to a document/folder in SharePoint?

I have several folders in a SharePoint Library. Some of the folders have restricted access by user/group. I have a particular folder that I would like everyone to have access to. However, I have so many people/groups, I would rather not have to create a universal group and keep it updated. Especially since you can't create a group from other groups.

Is there a way to allow anyone who can navigate to the link access to the folder?

Thanks!

Hi,
which SharePoint version (2007/2010/2013) and which edition (Foundation, Server, Online)?

If you use Windows Authentication AND if you have a domain, then you should be able to use either:
- DOMAIN\Domain Users or
- NT AUTHORITY\Authenticated User
to assign permissions.

Add-on:
if it is just for this library you will have to stop inherit permissions from the parent site.

It is 2010.

I guess I just need to suck it up and make a new group. I was hoping to have a way to set it as read-only to anyone.

Hi,
go to the permission of the library and add "nt authority\authenticated user" and give them read permission.
There is no need for a new group.
