Windows 10: Yet another W10 network credentials junk thread.. but plain talk !
I said I would set up a spoof account on every machine if I 'went the credentials way'. That is where there is no homegroup and you simply enter credentials (username/password) when you try and access a shared folder on another computer.
Distributing user/password credentials for that computer means that a person could log onto it at the keyboard and see much more than with regular networking or homegroup access to shared folders.
It's admirable that you are so clean living and pure as a family, but most people have things they want to keep private. If my daughter sends me an email and calls my wife a name, I don't want my outlook to be accessed by my wife do I ? That is the real world.
So far as I can see, the only way to preserve privacy on a network is not to distribute credentials, (not talking about homegroup password remember), and that means W7 style open networking to shared folders, or homegroups being forced by W10
I would love someone to tell me I am wrong because these are the only possible alternatives I can see...
A: keep W7 and shared folders which stops log ons to my computer
B: go W10 homegroup with only homegroup password being shared for shared folders
C: Go W10 with no homegroup and distribute full log on credentials (user plus password) which can be used to physically log onto any computer at the keyboard..
If I go W10, only B above is possible for a sinner ?

Again it is not called a Spoof account. If you want to share folders, use Home Group. If you want to do refused Network Shares, yes you need a specific user account that you will use to log into those shares. Otherwise you can use the Pro edition of 10 and assign a specific name to the shares.
Personally I say just get a NAS and wipe your hands of it. You can then assign users to whatever share that they want.
You are making this into more than it actually is and worrying too much about stuff that you cannot change.
If people cannot be trusted in your house. There are those that can fix that problem. But that is not going yo be discussed here.
Bro 67 Please stick to the technical stuff and don't moralize about my family because there are a lot of people that like to keep their business (such as money and health emails) private from their extended family and prefer to have a private computer. I don't know what you are insinuating about 'people who can fix the problem in the my family', but I think you are stepping way outside the bounds of a discussion on networking.
We want our machines with different passwords and different usernames and we each want them private but with shared folders. That is all you need to know and does not require you to comment on whether your family is better than mine (in your opinion)

Bye Felicia. You are the one that brought your personal life into this, not anyone else.
Who is Felicia ? Are you using this networking forum to abuse people and make remarks about their families and to call names ?
There really is plenty to talk about concerning technical things without trolling this kind of forum...
Could anyone please tell me what I need to enter for "Network Credentials" to access these shared folders on I7PC from I7HASWELL?

I upgraded two desktops to Win 10 (one from Win 7 and one from Win 8.1). I have issues with setting up a network.
