Windows Server 2008 R2 Grant access right to users folder on the network


It has been a while i worked on my previous job as Administrator for Server 2008  and now I have to do this job again. I have the login credential for my Windows Server 2008 R2 and I can manage everything I forgot on how I can give access rights to my Users in regards their folders access right permission.

I am logged in to our Windows Server 2008 R2 and I have my AD open but i cannot remember how to access user folder and give them access rights. Can you guide me?

I mean, when i logged in the Windows Server 2008 R2, where should a go or use to see those folders?

I have Active directory running but i cannot remember to do a check to find those folders and give them user access right to it.

See attached screenshot for reference.
Start -> Run -> compmgmt.msc -> OK.

Computer Management (Local) -> System Tools -> Shared Folders -> Shares

I think this is what you mean?
