    windows 10 Windows 7

    Windows 10 not accessible on Workgroup

    I have a workgroup of 3 computers
    1 Windows 7
    2 Windows 10
    Same workgroup name for each computer
    From My Windows 7 Machine I set-up the sharing

    Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network and Sharing Center\Advanced sharing settings
    I have Amin Login/Password on each machine
    So now I can acces and browse my Windows 7 machine from my Windows 10 machine
    But if I try to acces the Windows 10 Machine from the W7 machines I get a Login Pasword form suggesting a domain which is the name of My W7 machine

    But now way to access the Windows 10 machine with my usual Login Password

    Thanks for any help

    WINDOW 7

    I also experienced the same problem. Windows 7 can open share folder windows 10 .. but Windows 10 is unable to read folder share win 7 ... I think the share folder windows 10 can only share the same version. So, windows 10 is not good friend of windows 7 or XP..
