    Windows 10

    Problem accessing other devices on my network


    In Windows 7, if I needed to grab something off the desktop of one of my other boxes, I would just run something like the following...

    \\COMPUTERNAME\c$\users\myself\desktop

    and it would open an explorer window to that folder on that box.

    When I try this from the search bar on Windows 10, I get nothing but errors. Is there another way I should be doing this from Windows 10?

    Thanks in advance

    Windows 10 Pro (Mix of Builds) / Linux Mint

    How about listing the errors in detail?

    Have you tried using the IP address instead of the "Computername". Also, have you enabled file sharing in the Firewall?

    Why not just open explorer and find the Network share, or just Map it? You are doing three times the work for a one step solution.
