share button grey



I am trying to to share some folders on my laptop. I have file sharing and
public folder sharing turned on. When i go to the folder to share it, the
share button is grey. I can click on advanced sharing and play with those
settings but i still can't access the folder. I can see the folders in the
other computer but my access is denied. i don't have permision.
