    Can't Connect from Win 8 Laptop to Win 10 PC

    Hi . I have to devices at home - a laptop running Win 8 and a PC (with a local printer) that used to run Win 7 but which I recently upgraded to Win 10. I used to be able to connect my laptop to the PC to access the shared printer and files in a shared directory. Since I upgraded the PC to Win 10, I am no longer able to connect to the printer or even see the Win 10 PC on the home network.

    I tried leaving the Homegroup from both devices and then recreating the Homegroup on the Win 10 PC again. I was able to connect to the Homegroup from the laptop using the password, but when I click on the Homegroup in Explorer, I get a message that I cannot connect to the Homegroup. I also don't see the PC under the Network.

    Any ideas?

    Can you ping one computer from the other?

    Thanks for the responses. It's already private. I left the Homegroup and then rejoined using the password, but when I look for the other PC, I get the same message that it's not available.
