    Windows 10 small office network help

    I have a small office with 3 pc's in and need to network them all together so we can share files etc over the network, on Windows 7, it worked fine but now on Windows 10 it don't seem to work, the pc's are on private network and all connected via ethernet cables going from the each PC into one network hub with ethernet ports
    it keeps saying enter your network credentials but not sure what they are and did not have to enter them in when we was all on Windows 7

    I found out that my PC is Windows 10 Home and the PC that is being used as the server called OFFICESERVER-PC is running Windows 10 Pro, would that make a difference?

    Can anyone help please
    Thank you in advance
    Kind regards

    I don't need the [several] computers on my Network having the ability to talk to each other but do need access to files so I use a couple of NAS/Network Attached Storage drives connected to my Router via Ethernet cables then all computers, wired or wireless, can access the mapped Public Folder on each. The computers are a mix of Win7, Win8.1, Win10, Mac OS X and Linux.

    I also have an Inkjet printer and Laserjet printer attached by Ethernet cables and all computers, wired or wireless, that I install the software on can print to either. Only issue I have with that is scanning, sometimes problematic but not a deal breaker.
