    cant add a new PC to my homegroup..will not accept homegroup password

    I am having a home group password recognition problem setting up a new W10 pc with an old W10 laptop.
    The new PC will not recognize the original homegroup pw originally set up from my laptop.

    Is there a way of deleting the old homegroup and setting up a new one from scratch Thanks for your help

    Hey provlima,
    Have ALL PC's leave the current Home Group, then the Home Group should no longer exist and you should be able to create a new Home Group.
