Adding files to Library, sharing/unsharing files LW 5.2.8+
 
4 Attachment(s)
If you're updating to LW 5.2.8 from an earlier version of LW then you may find that the only files that appear in LW's library are files that were being shared in earlier versions.
And files that were previously in My Library but weren't shared with the P2P network may no longer show in LW's library, so you'll need to add them again.

Or see the info below...

Clicking on the My Files icon will show the sidebar, where you can see LW's Library, Public Shared, Private Shared & whatever lists you've created. Files in Library aren't automatically shared with other users. Public Shared lists the files that you're sharing with the Gnutella network (so that they're available for download by other users). Private Shared lists the files that you aren't sharing with everyone but might share with friends if you use the Friends feature.

3. Use your computer to find the folder or file(s) that you want to add & then drag the folder or file(s) onto LW's Library icon or onto the Library page. If dragging files, they'll be added to the list straight away. If dragging a folder, a dialog box will pop up asking you what categories you want to add - choose the file types that you want to add & then click add.

Highlight a block of files by clicking on a file & holding down the shift key
until you reach the last file that you want to add. Click on Add to Library.

Sharing files with all other Gnutella users

If you want your files to be shared with all other Gnutella users then those files must be in the Public Shared list.

To add files to the Public Shared list, either

1. Click on Library > right click on a file > Add to List > Public Shared.

Or

2. Click on Public Shared > click on the + Add Files button > browse for the files or folder that you want to add > highlight the files or folder > click on the Add File(s) button. See point 3 in post #1 if you aren't sure how to add a block of files or a group of non sequential files.

Or

3.
Use your computer to find the file(s) or folder that you want to share. Drag the file(s) or folder onto the Public Shared page or icon. If dragging files, they'll be added to the page & shared straight away. If dragging a folder, a dialog box will pop up asking you what categories you want to share - choose the file types that you want to share & then click Share.
