Useful info (c) Microsoft:
You can use in Windows 10 the Shared Folders Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in to centrally manage file shares on a computer. Shared Folders enables you to create file shares and set permissions, as well as view and manage open files and users connected to file shares on the Windows 10 computer.
You can share folders and files with others on your network or you can share your entire hard disk on Windows 10. For more control, you can specify the number of users you allow to simultaneously connect to the shared folder for your Win 10 PC.
The maximum number of users allowed to connect to a shared folder is limited by software licensing terms.
You can disconnect users from a shared folder by using the Shared Folders MMC snap-in or by using the command prompt. You cannot disconnect users through Windows 10 Explorer.
