    It seems that (at least as of now) I found out why I had R/O access to Win10 computer from Win7 computer. The insane Win 10 design has an additional place where write access sharing has to be specified - "Give Access To". Not only does the user name have to be added there, the Permission Level must also be changed to "Read/Write". This is in addition to specifying in SHARING -> Advanced Sharing ->Permissions that Full Control is allowed (checked) for the user name.
    If you look back at my screenshots in Post #7 that is exactly what I did. I added a user and gave him full control.

    You do not have to use Give access to.

    To paraphrase an old expression, if you can make something complicated (and stupid) why should you make it simple and clear? Microsoft's guiding principle!
    I like a simple life, so for sharing files all my PCs, be they physical or virtual machines running Windows 7, 8, 10 or 11, have a C:\TEMP folder shared out with share permissions for Everyone: Full control. In addition to share permissions, the ntfs file permissions also need to be set to Everyone: Full control. The finishing touch is to turn off Password Protected Sharing. This is a Win11 PC, but the same settings are available in Windows 7 and above.

    I can only tell you what happened with my computers: I had r/o access from the Win 7 computer but as soon as I added everyone to Give access to with Read/Write permission level in the Win 10 folder, the Win 7 computer suddenly had write access.

    Where is the ntfs file permissions setting located? Also, I can't find the Advanced network - Advanced sharing - Password-protected Sharing. Perhaps it has a different name & location in Win 10.

    Look at the properties of the folder you are sharing, it's the Security tab.



    Also, I can't find the Advanced network - Advanced sharing - Password-protected Sharing. Perhaps it has a different name & location in Win 10.
    In Windows 10 it is Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Network and Sharing Centre > Advanced sharing settings. You can open the Network and Sharing Centre from Settings.

    It is in the same place it was in post #4.

    You seem to be leaping around haphazardly. If you still have problems or if you encounter problems in the future then I urge you to work through the network setup systematically.

    Welcome to TenForums.

    It's really worth making time to browse through the Tutorial index - there's a shortcut to it at the top of every page.
    - At the foot of the Tutorial index is a shortcut to download it as a spreadsheet.
    - I download a new copy each month.
    - By downloading it as a spreadsheet I can benefit from Excel's excellent filtering capabilities when I search for topics of interest.
    - Tutorials are also listed by category at Tutorials - there's also a shortcut to that at the top of every page.
    - Both tutorial lists are searchable.
    - You can also search for TenForumsTutorials in many general search engines, such as Google, by adding site:tenforums.com/tutorials after your search term. For example,
    taskbar toolbars site:tenforums.com/tutorials

    You can search TenForums using the search box in the top-right corner of all TenForums webpages or using Advanced Search - TenForums
    - You can also search TenForums threads in many general search engines, such as Google, by adding site:tenforums.com after your search term. For example,
    Search for drivers by HardwareID site:tenforums.com
