Remove the last sentence before the "Notes," that reads:
"Full Control is the default permission on shared folders for the Everyone group."

Clarification: The default permissions are different based on whether you use the Sharing Wizard or use Advanced Sharing > Permissions. When you use the Sharing Wizard, only those users you specify will be added. When you use Advanced Sharing > Permissions, the Everyone group will have Read permission (as shown in Figure 6.31).
