    Unable To Map Network Drive

    I have two Windows 10 machines named Studio and Digital on an Ethernet network. I had Windows reinstalled on the Digital machine. From the Digital machine I can map a network drive on the Studio machine. From the Studio machine I am unable to map to the hard drive on the Digital machine. I am pretty sure I have everything setup correctly on the Digital machine including the computer name, account name, password etc.
    When I select the Digital machine and drive the "Enter Network Password" box appears and it says my network password is not correct.
    Please see the attached screenshot.
    Can someone please give me ideas as to what the problem may be? Thanks very much Bill

    You need a share setup which from screenshot I can't see then you connect to the share which should have everyone with rights then NTFS permission must be set if it asks for a password you need to provide a username and password that is on the PC your connecting to not yours from another PC

    Sumaria, I tried to create a share setup on the computer named Digital. When I did Map Network Drive, selected a drive letter then hit browse the Digital computer in the Select A Shared Network Folder was grayed out. When I clicked on it nothing happened.
