I followed the step listed in your post, but cannot join the homegroup with the Win 10 computers. We upgraded from Windows 7 and 8 to 10 and haven't been able to access the HomeGroup since. If so, let's move on the next steps. Windows 10 desktop can create a home group but my windows 7 laptop can not see the home group and vice versa. Remember that shared content will be available to other devices as long the device sharing the content is turned on and when it's not in sleep mode. From there, you are good to go. After creating a new group it showed me password and I was able to enter it in the other computer.
Write down or click the link to print the password. Thank you for your time and suggestion. Right-click the Start button and choose Control Panel from the pop-up menu. On the other computer, which had been updated from win 8 to win 10, there is no AppData folder in the LocalService folder. Since the update, I have been unable to reliably connect to the internet through the desktop, and the invisibilty cloak has been placed over the desktop.
In the same way, you've done after configuring a new HomeGroup steps, for each machine you join, you'll need to specify manually the media devices that will be allowed to stream shared content. I have been trying all the suggestions I could find on the Internet and now I am not happy with Win 10 version 1607 for leaving out of whatever was needed for the HomeGroup. Just been searching for an answer to my constant Windows 10 network problems. Wait 10 minutes and the situation may change. On the main computer, which had been updated from win 7 to win 10, I was able to delete the PeerNetworking folder. The process is very quick and easy.
Where have I gone wrong? Copy the path written further down and paste in the address bar of the File Explorer. If you see a Create a Homegroup button, click it to create a new Homegroup. It should say if there is a HomeGroup on the network. This would seem to be the easiest way to network two computers, but apparently, as it is in most computer related situations, things are never as simple as they seem. We index many online communities and look for a pattern of problems.
Otherwise, you won't be able to join any computers to HomeGroup. I am not a computer expert. I would be more likely to do a network reset. Still having the same issues. I see this is marked as Answered but shouldn't be. Home Group problems in Window.
Accidentally I found a workaround. There they can add check marks to the items they want to share and then click Save Changes. Clearly Microsoft have some way to go stop these apparently random malfunctions! Waiting for a fix for all this, hopefully it will come soon. When I looked that up on the web I was directed to another Microsoft Fix-It tool 50671. I am having trouble connecting my desktop to my laptops as a Homegroup as well after upgrading my entire household to Windows 10.
I do have Windows 10, 8. Depending on your network, you may be invited to join a Homegroup as soon as your computer connects with your router. As long as the permissions were correct on each computer as well. Many, many thanks for your easy to follow instructions. In that case, you only need to follow the steps to connect to the printer using the steps below. It is very beneficial for other community members who have similar problem.
Nearby sharing is available on computers running the Windows 10 April 2018 Update and later that use compatible Bluetooth adapters. There are too many bloggers just reiterating what is in the product instructions and if it works for them the assumption is it should work for you. When we find a pattern we will ask one of our experts in that expertise to write a Troubleshooting guide for the problem. In this , we'll walk you through the steps to keep sharing files and printers in your home network without HomeGroup after moving to the April 2018 Update. Guest Author: Jeff 07 Oct 2015 Set up Homegroup for 2 boxes running Windows 10 - I am able to see the other user and folders being shared. They can neither change nor delete those files, nor can they create or place any files in your folder. Trying to bail out a small office that's as plain jane as it gets and as stated by others am seeing the same thing with homegroup sometimes working then if left unattended for 10 minutes symptoms change.
