    W10 laptop keeps asking for network login

    I have 4 W10 computers
    1 desktop 1
    2 HP elitebook
    3 HP mini
    4 desktop 2

    all talk to the nas
    they all talk via the homegroup

    via file explorer - networks:
    the mini talks to the desktop 1 and elitebook
    the desktop 1 talks to the mini and elitebook
    the elitebook will talk to the mini but keeps asking for a login to talk to the desktop 1

    I have not brought desktop 2 into this yet.
    the desktop 1, mini and elitebook are configured the same under network/advanced
    all in the same workgroup
    the elitebook has HP client security installed but I can find nothing in there that would cause this.

    the the desktop 1 and mini do not ask for a login for any connection.
    So why is the elitebook asking for login to the desktop 1 and not the mini?

    Don't know why this is so but why not add the desktop credentials to the elitebook?

    Many of us have been through these puzzles and I have windows credentials added to my comps whether they need them or not!

    Don't forget, the credential username is in the form of computername\username.

    thx, THAT WORKED
    I tried a couple of ideas for login but had no idea what it was looking for.
    OR even why it was looking for it since my other computers had no trouble - once I configured them correctly.
