    Networking issue (Homegroup etc)


    Hi,

    I have been trying to setup a network between 2 Windows 10 computers. I have tried the homegroup route but receive an error. I have turned off firewalls, AV Protection, etc.
    I have tried just sharing the folders out over network but cannot do it. I am stumped. I need to get this working. Can someone point me in the right direction. I have tried Google searches and MS KB's but issue persists.

    Attached are screenshots of errors. I need to access the Desktop PC from the Laptop10 PC. There is no Password set for the login on the desktop.

    Reboot both computers, open Windows File Explorer on one and click on Network in the left menu. Look at the address bar at the top of the Explorer window and you should see a prompt to Enable sharing. Click it to enable. Do the same on the other Computer.

    Issue was one computer not being Password protected. Password installed, no issues
