    Can't Connect to my Windows 8 desktop

    I could connect before when I was running Windows 8 on my laptop to my Win 8 desktop. Now running Windows 10 build 9926 on my laptop I try to connect to my Windows 8 desktop it asks for a password which is never did before. I have changed my Win 10 laptop to private network but still it asks for password on the Win 8 desktop which it hadn't before. Btw my Windows 8 desktop can access the Win 10 laptop no issues. Any suggestions? thanks

    Not having any luck with those. I did the AllowInsecureGuestAuth on both the Win 7 and Win 10 computer . My Win 10 laptop is still being asked to enter password to access Win 8 desktop even though password access is turned off on the W8 desktop. Im stumped
