    Windows 10 Homegroup ?

    Have they removed this feature? My main computer is still Windows 7, and running the main homegroup.

    Just curious.

    The homegroup is still here. However, it cannot talk to PC's running Windows 7 or 8. Very annoying.

    EDIT: After one of Windows 10's silent updates, my Homegroup started working on its own. Nice to see it up and running, but I'd love to get reports before Microsoft changes my computer.
