    Problem accessing Shared Folder from XP. Please Help.

    Running Win 10 Anniversary Update on my Desktop, and on my Tablet.
    Running XP on my Notebook.

    I can access a shared folder on the XP notebook from the Desktop and the Tablet.
    I can access the shared folder on the Desktop from the Tablet, and the shared folder on the Tablet from the Desktop.

    I can access the shared folder on the Tablet from the Notebook (after first being denied access, the entering the user and password into a window that pops up after closing the denied access window).

    I cannot access the shared folder on the Desktop from the Notebook. I get a message saying that the shared folder is not accessible. You might ot have permission to use this network resource.

    It used to work. I don't know if it stopped working with Windows 10.

    Also, where is the equivalent of "My Network Places" in windows 10?

    Never mind... I guess. I'm not sure what I did to fix it, but I got it working again, although it does seem to take a long time for the XP Notebook to connect to the network, the login screen is not showing up.

    I also found the old "My Network Places" in windows explorer called "Network". I added a shortcut to in on my desktop.

    Hang on... That didn't last long. I logged off to test it, and when I logged back on I got the permissions error again

    I'm back again. I think I've finally got it thanks to Solved Sharing files on Windows 10 to Windows XP - Windows 10 Forums

    I think the 128 bit encryption was the main culprit, and password protection was slowing down the login.
