    Please: Quick Update On Win10


    Control Panel isn't there.
    User accounts aren't there.
    My own user account is now a 'microsoft account'
    Two modern win10 computers: A shows computers on the LAN. B shows none .
    Put B in a Workgroup and it still shows nothing.
    A sees B but can't log in: 'password expired'
    No apparent way to find this 'expired password' account on B
    Web 'how to's ' and help screens from as recent as a year ago refer to stuff that just isn't here now...


    I used to have an admin account and I'd create common user accounts.
    I could list accounts and change them and change passwords.

    Every computer on the LAN could be seen by all others - as long as in the same workgroup.

    How am I to operate now?

    I assume these changes have made thing simpler? Well they were pretty simple before so they should be really lovely now.

    And easy to describe to me.


    ? :)

    p.s. Immediate task: file transfers from B to A implemented from either end.

    Control Panel isn't there.
    Win+R->control.exe

    User accounts aren't there.
    Switch to Local User Account
    Win+R->lusrmgr.msc
    Two modern win10 computers: A shows computers on the LAN. B shows none .
    Put B in a Workgroup and it still shows nothing.
    Win+R->Services.msc
    On Both PC's, Check the following services and set to Automatic (Default is Manual but sometimes doesn't start). If not running then Start the service(s)
    1. UPnP Device Hos
    2. DNS Client
    3. SSDP Discovery
    4. Function Discovery Provider Host
    5. Function Discovery Resource Publication


    No apparent way to find this 'expired password' account on B
    In Local user account. Change the property of the user to: Password never expire.

    Ever since they removed Control Panel from right click, I added it to context menu. It makes life a little easier.

    Add Control Panel to Context Menu in Windows 10
