  • Hi John,

    You can Right-click a file or folder within the shared folder, choose Properties, and then click the Security tab. Here you can see the list of groups or users and their ACL permissions for the file or folder. By default, the Everyone group  is allowed to read, write, or modify files or folders within the shared folder. You can choose to remove the group as you want and add the certain user you want.

    Also you can modify the ACL via group policy under Computer Configuration/Windows Settings/Security Settings/File System.

    You can check below link for more details:
