    Windows 10 v 1909 removed setting Turn off password protected sharing


    I have been Googling this for an hour, but I can't find anything new on it. My computer is missing this setting now, and so is at least one customer of mine that can no longer print. Does anyone know what update removed this setting? This is going to affect thousands that need this to run their business to just do basic printer sharing.

    I don't think it can be an update that has caused the problem. I still have it on my up-to-date computer.

    Welcome to Ten Forums @slapshot


    That option is not applicable for machines that are members of a Domain. Is that the case here?

    Turn off/on password sharing doesn't exist

    They are on a domain, but I swear it's always been an option there as well. If not, my mistake and thank you.
