    Can't connect to SMB shares from 7..?

    Hello, I installed 10 on a PC with same username & pass as usual. Then from 7 I tried to reach d$ but it ask me pass & login, while normally it doesn't ask any (since it's the same!).. Can't understand that, would you please explain me/us..? Thanks!

    Already found out.. It's here : Accessing default shares - Page 2 - Windows 10 Forums

    For anyone else with the same question I had how to use/enable the default shares on a Win10 machine I found what you need to do (other than the obvious things like enabling file & print sharing etc) is to create a new DWORD (32-bit) Value called LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System and set it to '1'.
    If there was already a tutorial (with reg file here), then sorry (& paste link please

    In the end it may not be 100% right.. That registry setting eventually got back to 0, not sure after what.. Perhaps just after reboot?!
