Figures will vary depending on the IP address range of your router. If you haven't changed it I think the default range is 192.168.1.100
I have only enabled access to my Videos directory on my D: Media drive, so is set to 192.168.1.100/Videos
I only have read access to my Videos folder so I set it to anonymous, but you could easily have a username and password if you granted write/read permission to the directory.***
You can change which windows appear when you start up by pressing phone menu button, Settings
, then under Tools Settings click Window Settings
and then Set the Default Windows
. Now just tick all the windows you want to appear, press OK and now you can swipe between them.
