    Printer Problems and File Share Problems


    After upgrading to Windows 10 I had printer problems with my wireless HP printer. I could print from the laptop but not the desktop. The desktop installation had deleted the IP address to the printer. I had to re-install it from disk and do some tinkering. Now both printers work, but not as well as before.

    Also, I can no longer access files across the homegroup. It won't let me find the Public Pictures between computers. I'm at a loss.

    Did you delete the software and printer on both machines and go back through the install and setup process? As for Public folders, even though they are shared, you still have to log into the computer if file sharing is set for password needed.
