    Windows folder share ask for password when there is no password

    I have windows 10 pro 64 bit on my laptop and i want to share a folder to another laptop via wifi, but every time i try to connect from the other laptop it always ask for a username and a password but the laptop doesnt have any password, so i turned off password protected sharing but its still ask for username and password, so i turned on password protected sharing and add a password to the account, and when i put the username and password it says that the password or username is wrong, i even reinstalled windows to see if it will work but it still not working..
    So my question is how to setup folder sharing with out password

    Sorry for my bad english i hope people that read this understand my question

    I'm a Windows 7 user, my ideas may or may not work for you. First, make sure you have fully SHAREd the directories on each computer you want accessed by the other computers on your home network. My Control Panel's Network & Sharing section has a page where I have to yes to 2 or 3 questions to allow search and usage, and one option I say no to password needed.

    It is because Microsoft disabled Guest connections in Windows for security reasons.
