    hi Duffer,

    thanks for the nice words.

    And yes, did try with a local account and Administrator.

    True i always use an Administrator account.

    As for MS: did gave them Feedback twice, did put it on and

    No luck so far.

    hey guys,

    I am back with some more info. After getting the message that it was impossible to create a Homegroup, i finally
    could create one. Joining the Homegroup was impossible.

    All of a sudden i could create a Homegroup, but when entering the password i did get the message that another Homegroup was available. Strange from zero to two Homegroups? So since i could not use the last one, i did continue with the first one. Changing the password was the first move, to be sure everyone could join.

    And it worked, only...everybody sees 4 computers in the Homegroup, but in the network i can see only 3.

    The one i cannot connect to has exactly the same settings has the 2 others.

    Is the one you can't see the one that created the other homegroup? If it is, try removing it. Who knows ???????
    Glad things are improving.
    On the other hand, since things improved by themselves, you might just want to be thankful for small mercies and leave well enough alone and in time it might heal itself.

    Well Duffer,

    I contacted Microsoft and maybe they interfered?

    What i did was disconnecting the others from the network, easier than shutdown.

    But still, when i was on the network alone and Windows id not give me the Homegroup i created a long time ago, that is strange. When i did get the message that there was NO Homegroup and i could create one, and then all of a sudden i have 2.

    One i cannot use and one i can.

    I think the bad one is corrupted. Do not know where to find it either.



    I will leave it like this right now, i guess MS will make things all right soon.

    Well this morning (it is around 9.40 AM here), i only have 2 coputers in the network AGAIN.

    But since Build 10576 is installing right now, i am very hopeful that everything will be ok.

    Had to remove Bing also on my pc because the Slideshow was not working, as on my wifes computer...

    MS asked via mail why i removed Bing.

    So my problems right now, unless Build 10576 takes care of them:

    Slideshow not working with Bing on computer
    Network shows only 2 pc's instead of 4
    Cannot see the pictures when extra large icons is selected;

    Latest news here:

    Could not see my own computer in the network, everything is ok in the Homegroup.

    Lang Pack (Language Features) Feature On Demand for X64[en-US]

    Insider Hub Feature on Demand for X64

    Installed yesterday, so november 1st.

    Now i have again 2 computers in the network, instead of 4.

    I recontacted MS for another solution.

    Since Win 10, each of our computers thinks it is on its' own "network". They each have different network names and I can't get an inclusive network map but at least they are all in the same homegroup and can share.
    Man, you have the patience of Job ! Best of luck.

    Well Duffer,

    when i open run and use \\pc\drive\folder i open one of the computers i cannot see in the network.

    Even stranger: i use Always Sync to take B.U. to other computers and that program still runs ok and does the job.

    I can live with this problem and hopefully it gets fixed someday.
