    Password for Shared Drive

    Win 10 recently did update. Since then I have been asked for a password to access a shared folder on our other computer. I don't know what password it wants. I have been using this shared folder for months, maybe years without a password. Where can I find it, change it, disable it?

    The upgrade changes some settings in Network & Sharing Centre back to their default values.
    Open Network and Sharing Centre, Advanced sharing settings, and change the "all networks" section, turn on sharing, and turn off password-protected sharing.
