    Mapping network drive fails


    Hi,

    My wife and I have our computers networked to each other, until recently there were no problems, she asked to print some photos for her, told me where they were, so I went to the S: drive (her mapped drive) and up popped a window asking to enter network credentials. This is new, my password doesn't work, her password doesn't work.

    There have been two upgrades to Windows over the past few days, have they added new security measures, how do I get around this?

    Oops, just logged into my wife’s computer and discovered that my user named changed in W10 to my Google email account (don’t remember why). So mapping to her computer worked just fine using my original user name. This doesn’t explain why it quit working after one of the last W10 updates, but I can now print her pictures!
