Windows 10: Unable to share files over Network

    Unable to share files over Network

    Unable to share files over Network

    I'm wondering if the requirement to log in is what's preventing me sharing on my network - on which 4 other laptops running Windows 10 are all happily communicating with the same sharing permissions as I've set up on this one. When I try to access files/folders on this new laptop (Asus N752VX) I'm told I don't have permission.

    Password protected sharing is turned off.


    I must add... heaven knows why I'm finding it so difficult to set up this laptop when I've coped fine with Windows 10 on my others... except I'm a little bit older?

    Are you using Network Shares or Home Group? If you are having issues, it can be third party Security Software if you are running any on that machine.

    I do apologise, Bro67 Please put it down to frustration, confusion and tiredness that I haven't responded.

    Incidentally, I haven't been able to use HomeGroup for yonks - maybe because the originating laptop did a runner years ago? Anyway, I never get anywhere trying to join the one Windows thinks I should.

    To cut a long story short, I upgraded this new laptop from Home to Pro (to match my others), then reset to factory settings, and have managed to get enough communication to use it for the purpose I bought it for. Still being asked for Network Credentials in some instances, but life's too short to struggle with that any more.

    Thank you for chipping in - I'm sure it's infuriating when people you try to help don't respond so I hope you will forgive me
