What if I'm not seeing the shared folder options window?

If the shared folder options window fails to pop up in your browser, you may be experiencing an issue caused by a third party browser extension or add-on (such as a pop-up or ad blocker).

If this happens, temporarily disable any browser extensions or add-ons that are running. Once you remove a shared folder or update other settings you can re-enable these browser extensions.
