Windows 10: New prompt for Network Credentials on W10 not seen before.

    New prompt for Network Credentials on W10 not seen before.


    Multiple computers on wireless net. Some W7 and one W10. Files visible on any computer from any computer and then a second W10 computer was added. Attempts to access its files or to use it to access files on any of the other computers elicits a small window/prompt for Network Credentials: Username and Password.

    What username? What password? Suggestions?

    TIA for any actionable suggestions.

    Welcome to the TenForums @patrickg

    Can I ask, are you using homegroup to share files on other machines?

    Are you using user names and passwords on other machine, like Owner or Patrick, password xxxxxxxxx. This would be when you sign in or awaken from sleep.

    Sorry about questions, didn't ask enough earlier.

    If you are using Homegroups here is a tutorial on joining.

    I don't get it... maybe faith healing? The new W10 computer is fully networked now accessing files on other computers and vice versa. How did I fix it? Did I fix it? I didn't do anything to fix it but it works now. Go figure. I'll still probably go to the referenced tutorial.

    Strange things are happening...
