    Homegroup - How to delete?


    Before I upgraded all of our computers to W10 they were on W7 and we had a homegroup set up and working.

    For some reason none of the computers can connect to the homegroup anymore - I get the "you can join the workgroup" message and the box to enter the password. Guess what, I can't find the password anywhere

    Is there a way to remove the existing homegroup and start again?

    TIA

    Registry Change?


    The message I have is (I) have created a homegroup on (this computer) and an invitation to join. However, my saved password doesn't work. The other computers don't belong to the homegroup. I've tried everything I've found, shutting off all computers, deleting files, etc. I still get the same message. One user suggested that if no one belongs to the homegroup, it will disappear, but on my computer, it persists.

    I'm wondering if there is a registry entry that should be removed.
