    Okay try Rita as the User name and blank as the password. Maybe another member follow this thread would know what to use for no password, I always use passwords.

    Failing that click on Sign-options and change Rita's password

    I think it is interesting that a Homegroup is showing on Rita. I thought you didn'y use. The Homegroup may be active.

    I mentioned in Post #8 that I had tried Rita w/ no password (also Rita-PC). Both to no avail.

    Hmm... I'll give that a try. But It does seem incongruous that I can access the G - Upstairs Drive from this downstairs laptop, but cannot get to the Downstairs Drive from the upstairs tower.

    When you run out of things to try you begin to grasp at straws. I just set that up the other day thinking it might accomplish something. It did not.

    The user name is definite Rita unless you also have an account on machine.

    WIndows key + R, type sysdm.cpl and you will see a tab computer name... that is the Rita-PC

    Okay. I added a password to Rita. Rebooted both PCs, and here are the unchanging results.Click image for larger version.

    These screen shots do not show where you entered user name, Rita.

    You are using the user name, it appears you are using the device name Rita-PC.

    Under more choices can you reselect the user you are trying to sign on to on the downstairs machine.

    and it looks like the Homegroup might still be on Rita-PC. It likely set things to share through Homegroup.

    The Homegroup has now been disabled on the Downstairs laptop. The icon remains, but clicking on it only initiates setting up a Homegroup. From the network credentials screen, clicking on More Choices, takes me to the following. Clicking on Rita-PC just prompts for the password, etc, etc...

    You should NOT click Rita-PC on that prompt! Click Use a different account, then enter username Rita and that user's password.

    It's really simple: to sign in to another PC, an existing username on that computer must be used. In your case, Rita-PC is the name of that other computer, not a username. Username you should use is Rita.

    Damn!!! Kari, that was it. Boy do I feel stupid. I never stopped to think that there was a difference between Rita and Rita-PC. Thanks to you. And many thanks to Caledon Ken for sticking with this for me.

    Glad you got it working and the forum could help.
