Windows 10: Issue connecting to Win 7 PC from Win 10

    Issue connecting to Win 7 PC from Win 10

    When on my Win 10 PC and go to Network > Win 7 PC. Instead of connecting and letting me see the shares, it gives me an "\\COMPUTERNAME is not accessible. You might not have permission..." error.

    On my Win 7 PC I have all the advanced sharing settings turned on. My Win 8 computer has no issues connecting to it.

    Any ideas?

    Use Credential Manager in Ctrl Panel to set up a Windows Credential for your shares. You will need to add a username and password that can access the share.

    Yep that's the one. Do you have a good link showing how to set up windows credentials for shares? I know I could google it, but you seem to know how so wanted to ask. Thanks
