    Wow, I'll have to look at that too, but IMHO, if the IP's had changed, you shouldn't even get to a logon request trying to go to that machine...

    I was trying to access a printer connected to laptop B, while on machine "A"
    In file manager, accessing laptop"B" from laptop A, I entered my Microsoft account (instead of actual username, password) when prompted for "Network Credentials" and that connected me to the other laptop and its shared files. I did this for laptop "C" also.
    I then used the "add printer" dialog on laptop "A" to add in a printer that is connected to the laptop "B" via USB port.
    Now I can access everything and print to this shared printer.

    All along laptops "B" and "C" could access each others files and these were all 3 upgraded to Windows 10 at the same time.

    Seems like I should not have to create a "new" user as martinr did?? Cannot I just change the network credential on "B" and "C" to be the actual username and password??????

    Again, all is working for now, but was convoluted to setup.

    Hi How I solved this issue when connecting my Blackberry Playbook to my laptop. On Playbook enable Development Mode in Security section. Note the development address, i/e \\169.254.0.2\. You will need to use the slash signs as shown.
    In Windows 10 type,run, into Search the web and Windows box, bottom left hand side. This will open a list, click onto top Run desktop app. A box will open,type in your development number, include slashes and dots, as shown above.
    This opened my Blackberry on my laptop but asked for my credentials. Tried variations of my password to no avail. Then inspiration, go to storage and sharing on Playbook, obviously enable File Sharing and Wi Fi Sharing, but and here is the answer, Turn off Password protect. Then yeahhhhhhhhhhh all my Playbook files opened on my laptop and I was able to transfer files back and forth. Good luck....................................... gnilwoc

    I have managed to solve this issue.
    I noticed, while checking everything I could think of, that both of our PCs had been assigned different IP addresses to what they had previously. I have no idea how or why!
    I changed them back, using my router's software interface, to the static IP addresses they had beforehand and the Network Credential issue immediately disappeared.
    I can't pretend to understand how the change of IP addresses created the problem in the first place or why changing back has cured it, but everything seems to work now.
    I did everything you did but I is still have the problem.
    I use static addresses nothing has changed
    I did the first major up date when it came out,
    I just did the second computer and access is gone.

    Thank You linw. I was having the same problem and sure enough, it worked.

    Is HUGO the user on COMPTROLLER whose shares you are trying to access?

    On this assumption, the username should be COMPTROLLER\Hugo. (See Peter's name above I7PC\Aileen).

    OK, Peter's is not working but see if yours will work with the full username anyway. Until you do this, your problem is different from Peters.

    I had a similar problem on upgrading to Windows 10. One machine could not connect to others on the network, although they could connect with it. On the problem machine I kept getting the constant request for Network Credentials, which no username or password would satisfy.

    The solution then occurred to me. I had a different username on the problem machine. Rather foolishly on upgrade, I responded to the request to enter details of my Microsoft account and ended up with a username which was my email address.

    My solution was to set up a new user account using my normal username, and delete the old one keeping my files of documents, favourites etc.

    Having transferred the old files over to the new user account, I have lost nothing but can now access my network without having to give any passwords.

    I am happier with my "new" username, but have had to repeat the personal changes which I made on original upgrade (getting rid of Bing, Cortana etc) and set up a new restore point and backup arrangements.

    I spent many hours messing with Credentials Manager and Network and Sharing settings, and came to the conclusion that the former was unnecessary and that the standard settings for file sharing were fine for my relatively unsophisticated network. These settings incidentally leave password protection on.

    Give this a try, if you too have usernames which don't match between machines.

    Martinr,

    Thank you! I used my Microsoft Account login credentials and (POOF!) I was logged into the other computer (a notebook) on my little network.

    Date and Time


    I know its probably simple but check that the date and time is set correctly. This can be the cause of loads of niggling issues.

    I have the same issue. It's only been a problem since I installed the 1607 version of Win 10. Previously (on Win 10 1511) all worked fine.

    In explorer I can see the computer on which the shared drive is located, but when I click on the name I get the dreaded "Enter network credentials" pop-up window.

    Computer A is a desktop PC, which has a shared partition "Data on A960".

    Computer B is a laptop PC, which has a shard partition "Data on T400".

    Computer A can see and access the share on computer B, however computer B cannot do likewise.

    The strange thing is that computer A also hosts a shared printer and computer B can print to the printer without any issues, so it's unlikely to be related to any issues with IP addresses (I assume!).

    Both PCs have a admin-level user account, with no password, and the accounts are not linked to any online or external Microsoft accounts. I've tried entering the host and username of each PC when attempting to log-in via the Network credentials pop-up window, with no luck.

    Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I can try next?

    Cheers,

    Mike.
