    This might help Network - Add or Remove from Navigation Pane in Windows 8 Explorer

    I'd edit your picture also to remove your e-mail address if I was you

    I believe you need to turn off streaming for this device if you don't want to see it available for streaming.

    You can go to the Network and Sharing Center, then to the Advanced Network settings, click on All Networks then look where it says Media streaming and click on the link to the streaming options where you can uncheck or block the device from streaming.

    It only affects the file explorer. It depends what you mean by "see Network". You can still access it (some say "see it") but it will not be there in the file explorer (you can't "see" network locations in File explorer any more).

    I think chev69 solution is what you want - I was looking at the problem backwards, sorry. You turn off streaming and then share individual folders. Then your friend will only see the shares.
