    Did you try post 4 as that should work any default share with $ you must provide admin user/password
    you dont need adminvz D:\adminvz use d$ which gives you all the drive. anything in the user profile like my docs desktop are extra protected and by default even if your in as admin on the pc you cant simply access those folders
    I did not try post 4, I did not understand it fully. I am not a stupid person, but you must be light-years ahead of me in Win 10 expertise and vernacular, and you know what you are talking about. I'll see if I can make sense of it.

    Does this look right?

    Net use d: \\%my-devicename%\D$ /user:%myusername% %mypassword%

    I used the proper device name etc. but got a system error 85. The local device name is already in use.

    The bit net use d: assigns the drive as d it must be a letter not in use on your PC like s: that's why you get the errors

    Q. If I use S: for instance will that change the drive letter from D to S? I have an external storage drive S:

    I am beginning to lean toward removing all shares on both C: (op sys drive) AND D: (data drive) then start from scratch. What do you think? I would do both Win 7 devices too. That should level the playing field, yes?

    Before you start over, from the other computers, enter a few commands and record the output.

    Open a Elevated Command Prompt (not required but always a good idea when debugging)

    net view (this should return the names of the computers on your network). Mine returns
    \\DESKTOP (my Desktop system I'm currently typing on)
    \\KFWSERVER
    Query the other system
    net view \\KFWSERVER (should return shares on that computer. Will not show the Default shares). Mine shows
    HP_C Disk
    HP_D Disk
    HP_E Disk
    HP_F Disk
    HP_G Disk
    HP_H Disk
    Users Disk

    Does any of that work?

    Hmmm... interesting I think,

    From the Win 7 desktop:

    Net view \\DESKTOP returned a system error 53, the network path was not found.
    Net view \\KFWSERVER was the same.

    The Win 7 Laptop gave the same results.

    I could still connect to both Win 7 devices from the Win 10 laptop.

    As a followup, I did the same from the Win 10 laptop and got the same results, yet I could connect to both Win 7 devices from the Win 10 laptop. errrr....

    Can you connect via IP instead of name?
