    How do I get a Win 7 Pro computer to display users on a Win 10 Pro com


    When I log onto a desktop computer running Windows 7 Pro and click on the icon for Windows Explorer/Networking my Windows 10 Pro notebook is shown, however the only User is Public.

    The configuration on the Win 10 Pro notebook for Network and Sharing Center/Advance sharing is:
    1. Private profile has been selected and “turn on network discovery” is selected with automatic setup checked.
    2. All Networks, “Turn on sharing so anyone with network access can read and write files in the public folders” is checked.

    By selecting these options the Win 10 Pro notebook became visible on the Win 7 notebook. What do I need to do to allow specific Users to share Folder/Files access on computers running Win 7 Pro and Win 10 Pro connected to the same Private network?

    Thanks so much to Eagle51 for directing me to Brink's tutorial, 'Share Files Over A Network In Windows 10'.
    I used Option One and that solved the problem of why I could not get my Windows 10 OS to recognize and be recognized by my Windows 7 OS.
    Two services were not turned on, hence the reason for my problem,
    (Function Discovery Resource Publication and Function Discovery Host.)
    Once I turned them on it was clear sailing!
    Thank you again!
