    Found out by accident if I logon on using a pin number I can't see or connect to my network computers. If I logon on using my password everything works as it should.

    That's Very Interesting. Illogical, but interesting. Thanks!!

    -------------
    Searched for 'How to Windows 8.1 Credential Manager' and got another group's explanation.
    I now know how to do it and it's a real PAIN IN THE REAR for the average user. The Share function
    was doable, involved, but doable. For a single machine, annoying, with 10 PC's it's a HUGE step back
    in user friendliness. Hopefully The Win10 Team will re-install the easier share function soon.

    Again, y'all spoke truth, -THANKS-, I just didn't want the answer.
    I'd never used the Credential Manager before, either, but I can sort of appreciate a one stop place for providing access permissions. Maybe MS has a grand plan for security that we can't quite see yet! I'm happy to go along with this but I only have 4 comps to deal with.

    Good to hear you have cracked it!

    In the credentials dialog, give your Windows 8.1 username as Computer_name\Username, for example if the Win 8.1 PC is MyMonsterMachine and user profile is SuperGeek give the username as MyMonsterMachine\SuperGeek. This changes the domain from the Win 10 PC to Win 8.1 PC.

    I've always managed to solve that problem by sorta slow dancing with it.
    I really don't remember all the steps but try opening the shares from the host machine first and then try from the remote machine.
    Several clicks back and forth and I'm in.

    I have never messed with Credentials to connect the two machines.
    YMMV
