Windows 10: Bugged Homegroup

    Bugged Homegroup


    Hello I recently had to do a system recovery on a Windows 7 that had Windows 10 on it. The original name of the computer was Summer-HP (that's what showed in the network list)
    Upon redoing the computer I named it Corey-HP as I was transferring ownership to another person. I upgraded the Windows 7 once again to Windows 10.
    I joined the Homegroup (one I've had for years) but I could not access all the shared folders across the network from other computers...It was not asking for my credentials even though I had it all setup the correct way where it should have.
    I ended up leaving the Homegroup to try and "reset" it so to speak. After leaving it said "Summer-HP" had setup a Homegroup and was inviting me to join.....??? um Summer-HP doesn't technically exist anymore. The other computers are just fine on the old Homegroup and working perfectly fine...I decided not to join the Homegroup because it's going to get sucked into the old "Summer-HP" one and still be bugged. Any ideas?
    I would like to keep the current Homegroup if possible because I have many devices connected to it already would be a pain to go to each one and create/join a brand new one but if it's necessary, let me know.

    A homegroup can only be shared between Windows computers. Regular Network sharing has no effect on Home Group, same thing that Home Group has no effect on regular Network sharing.

    Yes it is supposed to work, but Home Group has had issues for a long time when a existing Home Group is still looking for a old connection. See the following for the possible fix. Solved *** How I Fixed My Missing Network Homegroup Computers *** - Windows 10 Forums

    I've done everything in that post, I've even removed every single computer from the homegroup created a new one, joined every computer to the new homegroup but the 1 computer still will not function properly.

    Now 2 computers.
