    This link will help you with the issues in windows 10 and v1803 connection issues.
    Connecting PC’s & Users for Sharing XP, Vista, 7, 8 & 10
    Many people will still have issues with their printers wired or wireless. You might have to spend some extra time messing with it and maybe will not get them fixed or working. Same with sound recording and webcams and cameras.
    And rebooting your modem and restarting all PC's and devices can do wonders.
    I've been through the above link, as it was posted earlier. None of that worked for me─except for the printer, I can print from the Win 10 machine─including rebooting the modem and all PC restarts.

    Follow my link connecting PC's and users.

    Yes it will always be WORKGROUP unless you change it to a DOMAIN. I seriously doubt they did this.

    Default settings for a network.

    Tipford, are you trying to share from your C:\ drive. If so, right click the drive>>security>>advanced, either take ownership or not of C:\ and add users>> everyone and network with FULL permissions in the user list.

    restart PC.

    then select your item to share>>advanced sharing.
    In the list >> EVERYONE will already be there. Then ADD the user>> NETWORK.
    Then select the sharing permissions to your preference. set them both the same as explained in my article.
    restart pc.

    Now if you have the issue some have connecting to other PC's by the default \\PC HOST NAME
    then you must create shortcuts to PC's using \\PC IP ADDRESS.
    This means you can no longer access the other PC using the network folder. you access the other PC's with the shortcut you created \\PC IP ADDRESS.

    this is how to take ownership, add users and permissions in security for items.

    How to take ownership of any item: "THIS IS AN EXAMPLE used with removing all users in the user list for another situation. Not needed for this network sharing setup". Just add EVERYONE and NETWORK with FULL permissions in the user list.

    Right Click on any Item>>Properties>>Security Tab>>Advanced
    You can see here that TRUSTED INSTALLER is the Owner and all the user names listed below that can run Disk Cleanup.

    Now you take Ownership of the Item:
    Now you select CHANGE next to OWNER.

    Advanced>>Find Now>>Select your user account name in the list>>OK
    Apply>>Verify OK. Now you are the Owner of that file cleanmgr.exe.

    >> Now select Disable Inheritance. (""Not necessary for this situation"")
    (This removes all the users in the list. Enabling it again will replace them back into the list)
    If it does not remove them, then manually remove each of them. <<

    Now you MUST ADD Your Name to the User List:
    Now select ADD>>Select a Principle>>Advanced>>Find Now>>Select your user account name in the list>>OK>>OK
    Now select full control permissions box>>OK
    Now you are the owner and the only user on the list with full permissions for Disk Cleanup..
