    Windows 10 64-bit Home

    Folder sharing PC to PC not working, both Win10-64bit

    After upgrading to Win 10 on both my PC & HP laptop, folder sharing worked even with my wife's Mac. Oddly, now the only one that works is PC to Mac. All folder sharing fails between my PC & HP laptop.

    I've checked my shared folders to be sure "Everyone" is included. When I try to connect, I get a popup asking for passwords (see photo). I know the ID & passwords are correct but it fails every time.

    Not sure how to fix this?

    Turn off password....
    In addition, on security tab of the shared folder, you also have Everyone set to full control

    That did it! Still confused why logging in didn't work if the user name & passwords were correct. But, it's working & that's the goal! Thanks.
