Can my family members share our purchases on separate computers with separate accounts?

We have several apple products in our home and a  new one today.  Is it possible to use these products on different computers sharing all of our purhcases or do we need to stay on one computer on one account?  I know we can do that with the home sharing, but we don't all want all the same things, just some of the purchases.

Use Find My Friends app instead.   Much easier to manage, and you won't need each other's id/pw's to do it.   They only need to accept your invitations and vice versa.

  • Can two family members share downloads on different accounts in different states?

    My daughter and I have shared the same itunes account for years.  Now she has her own itunes account and has moved to Ohio.  Can't we still share songs that she buys from her account and that I buy from my account?

  • I want to share iBooks with another family members iPad without purchasing twice. Devices are synced to two different computers.please advise.....

    I want to share iBooks between mine and another family members iPad without purchasing the books twice. Is this possible?

    If you have the same AppleID then just download on the second iPad by going to Purchases in the Bookstore.
    If you are not using the same ID then you have to purchase again.

  • A family member gave our kids their old iphone with music already loaded for them.  How do we add the music to our library? It won't transfer purchases from the phone and if I sync it, the music is erased.  Can someone walk me through this?

    No one here will help you violate iTunes terms of service or steal music.

  • Can I share purchased books from iBooks with separate iTunes accounts?

    Can I share purchased books from ibooks with separate iTunes accounts?

    While that's an understandable desire, the publishers don't want you buying a book and sharing it with multiple individuals who others would buy it. The inability to "share" a book or pass it on to a friend or relative when you're done is one of the drawbacks of ebooks vs traditional print ... And consider that when you pass on a real book to your wife, presumably you're not reading it at the same time. :-)
    Some other ebooks do allow limited (time-constrained) sharing of books - Barnes & Noble, for one, I believe - and they have an app for the iPad that would allow you to read books on it.

  • Does Family Sharing let family members share iCloud storage?

    i Have 200 Gb in my iCloud plan. I am using 20 Gb of that. Can my family members use the other space, or does everyone need his or her own drive?

    Storage amount can not be shared currently.

  • How can i remove them from my purchased(no hidden them)and my account for ever?

    hello
    I got a few free app before and did not download them completely and dont want to do this,
    but they stay in my purchased and start automatly when i connect to itunes store and going to crazy me
    How can i remove them from my purchased(no hidden them)and my account for ever?
    (I want to delete all free apps and Books from my purchases.)
    please help me
    thank you.

    There is no way to do it. Others have asked for the very same thing that you are asking for, but currently it just cannot be done. You can't remover purchases from your Purchase History - you can hide them - but you can't delete them from the history.
    You can delete the Apps from the iPad and you can delete them from iTunes on the computer. Delete them from iPad, delete them fromiTunes so that when you sync there is no chance that they will come back. Then hide the purchases. That's the best that you can do.
    On the iPad, tap and hold down on the app icons until the X pops up. Tap the X to delete the apps.
    In iTunes, clcik on Apps under the Library heading on the left. Right click on the apps that you want to delete and follow the prompts.

  • Can I use two separate computers with the same adobe ID.  I want to update my kobo from either unit

    Can I use two separate computers with the same adobe ID.  I want to update my kobo from either unit

    I doubt it is possible to run two instances of iTunes on the computer at the same time.  To do so would require two users to be signed in and running iTunes under each user.
    The better solution would be to either clean up and merge the two libraries or have iTunes running on a second computer.

  • Can I have smart print eprint on two different computes with only account

    Can I have smart print eprint on two different computers with only one account???

    Are you talking about accessing an ePrint account from various computers? Or having  HP Smart Print on multiple computers?
    ePrint account information is kept at the site. You can log on it from anywhere, from any computer. Just go to the sire and click on Sign in and enter your password and email address. You can have multiple printers on one user account at ePrint Center (EPC). But printers can only be registered on ePrint Center to one user account.  If you have an ePrint cable printer you can create an account at this link here. 
    HP Smart Print does not require an account you can download to an Internet Explorere browser (versions 6-9) and use it with no registration.

  • Can family members share rental movies?

    Hi!
    I wonder if family members (using the Family Sharing feature) can watch rental movies. When I search the internet, I have found info that says one can do so. But it does not work.
    My husband and I have set up Family Sharing (and the credit card that pays for it all, is mine), bit it is not possible for me to see the movie he have rented. I can see all his music and visa versa, but not the rental movies.
    I find this strange, and not in line with the intention Apple has proclaimed regarding Family Sharing. I pay for the fun, but am not able to watch???
    Or is it suppose to work, but does not because of a bug?

    Just tested this.  You have to enter the Apple ID Password for the device you are trying to remote erase.  You CAN put the device in lost mode without the password, but you cannot initiate a remote wipe without the password for the device.

  • Failure of ACL setting for CIFS share resource on Windows client logined with administrator account

    Hi,
      We accounter a puzzle of ACL setting for a CIFS share resource. In our application, we use the
    administrator account to login a Windows 7 OS which is used as the CIFS client. We can access the share resource by "\\server_ip" on  this CIFS client,  but we can't add
    a new ACE to the ACL of a CIFS share resource provided by a CIFS server.
    Why dose this hanppen? Note that the CIFS server maybe a Windows OS or a self-developed CIFS server. 
      The operation details as followed:
    1.Access the share resource by "\\server_ip", login the CIFS server by a valid account on the CIFS server.
    2.On the Windows client, select the "Security" panel in the mouse-right-button properties dialog of a cifs share resource.
    3.To add a new ACE for someone eg. user0, we input "user0" in the "Select Users ans Groups" dialog popped up.
    4.Click OK, but the Windows client will not get the user information for user0 from the CIFS server.
    WHY?
    5.By wireshare network trace, we find the Windows client didn't send any SAMR requests to the CIFS server.
    6.Restart the Windows client OS and login again with another account except administrator, carry out the above operations. We find that the Windows client can get the user information, opposite with the step 4 above.
    WHY?
    7.By wireshare network trace, we find that the Windows client has sent SAMR requests to the CIFS server to get user informations. But that is different from step 5,  WHY?
    If the Windows client OS is login with administrator account, is there any configuration on Windows client to decide whether request user information on CIFS server when setting ACL for CIFS share resource?
    Expect your help.Thanks.
    Best wishes.
