Hi i seem to have trouble sharing my mac files to my pc.

i know you have to go to system preferences on mac--> Sharing and hit filesharing...then you add the folders and presferences you want

well i did all this... however my pc can only see the mac 'public' folder..... it cant see specific folders like things i have on the desktop... i dont want to have to drag any file i want to move from my mac to my pc by draggin it in the public folder...

can anyone help? thanks in advance
