Before you begin HomeGroup is very particular on the network configurations you use and if your computer was previously part of another HomeGroup. This will allow you to set permissions for the shared file, including the ability to edit, setting an expiration date, setting a password, and sharing via social media. He's also written hundreds of white papers, articles, user manuals, and courseware over the years. Following an early Windows 10 Update, the machines stopped seeing each other as computers, although they were still visible as media devices. You can't have two computers on the network with the same name. Ive installed all the latest drivers for my hardware, windows update has gotten windows 10 patched up to date. So, I can see what is happening, but I cant figure out why.
Communications between either laptop and either desktop are also unpredictable. Maybe, we are the guinea pigs for Microsoft. Nothing in our environment had changed, no new apps, no new networks. I even went through services. Like many people, I spent hours trying various suggestions gleaned online, and nothing worked. I've been researching this on the web and it seems like this is a common problem, but I can't find a solution for it.
It obviously shows nothing on the Network now. Well, I did have to remap the network every time I turned the laptop on, but that only took a minute. No need for a restart or the other nonsense above. Each machine can communicate with the other. I do not trust the newer versions of Windows 10 to do the job. It appear to me that the network issue is only on a computer that were converted from previous win8 etc.
Running the can often solve your problems, or at least point you toward steps you can take that might help. Again, resetting your network should really be a last resort kind of thing. Accidentally I found a workaround. This is due to the fact that, the Windows Service that supports this feature gets issues in triggering up. I have a windows 10 and a windows 7 computer at home. I know this because I can't do it that way on Windows 10 Home or Pro Ok I have Win 7 Ultimate 64 and Win 10 Pro 64 version 17134 before the 1803 upgrade.
If you have feedback for TechNet Subscriber Support, contact. I had to do this on each computer in the office. The first thing you want to do is to pick a name for the media library, as Windows 10 by default uses your account's email address. Feedback items regularly receive Microsoft responses on the submissions in the Feedback app so you can see what we are doing about your feedback. I go to Explorer in Win 10 x64 Creative on all boxes.
I hate homegroup and want to share old school. Win 10 Updated and I lost the connection. It can be used to browse files and folders in a local or even a remote network. If you have feedback for TechNet Support, contact Hi all. Click on it and then on Reset now.
I have spent the last 2 days not working but instead trying to wrassle these two computers into talking to each other. No service is disabled and pretty much everything else is on too. On each computer, it did list the other two computers plus my printers. This problem persisted through all subsequent Windows updates, and current Xmas 2017, post-Fall-Update. Also, my ongoing Troubleshooter messages also think that my Firewall is a problem, but it wasn't a problem before the recent upgrades in Win 10. You can also change on which networks you will let devices stream shared content by using the Show devices on drop down menu.
It is not to be confused with a similar service called as Function Discovery Provider which has a similar functionality. Mine is my gmail email address and the password is the password for my gmail account. What you may want to do therefore is to change the startup type of the service to automatic. But the Windows 10 April 2018 update version 1803 discontinued this service. Based on searching this has been going on for some time. Users who's data is in the cloud, on the internet have less issue, it may only affect attaching printer resources which can be worked around. Update: Microsoft the issue recently.
Along with various other phones and cameras and rubbish of course The problem I am having is that certain machines cant see other computers on the network, they see some, but not all, but they do appear to work if you address them correctly. You need to decide which one you will stay with, and stick with it. If you know of any great tools for browsing Workgroups that don't rely on the older protocols I'd be happy to hear from you. Thank you for your time and suggestion. The service is broken in Windows 10 Creators 1703. I contacted Support and we were not able to resolve this laptop's inability to join my homegroup, so I dissolved it and tried to go the network sharing route. Can someone advise me the simplest way to share a folder between the two computers please? It was a relatively quick fix, once I found your content.
The discrepancy happened with me when upgraded to windows 10 but no notice. After following the link given by the Microsoft support this is what I've found when you select Windows 10 in the dropdown list. My son rarely if ever is interested in sharing files on our home network, so I am not going to run winver on his laptop. How do you share files and other resources on your local network? I use a computer as a tool. Now I was having soooo much trouble that I was about to try installing network cards to both machines and hard wire them.
