    Can you see all the shares? Mine can see all computers but the shares can't be seen on my main one.

    10240 + 'security' update hasn't helped my problem with this one machine.

    Was having the same problem with 10240 and older builds.

    Still does not work when I use the pin to login, but if I use my password for the ms account to login, I can now access my other windows 7 and windows 8.1 systems in the house.

    I added my ms account id as a local account to my non windows 10 pc's, and hid the account in the registry so it would not show on the login on those pc's. Now I can see and access all my windows 7 and windows 8.1 pc's from my windows 10 system.

    Use this to hide the account from login screen on the non windows 10 pc's.

    change "msaccount@whatever" to your ms account.

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\SpecialAccounts\UserList]

    Got File Sharing to Work Using Microsoft Accounts

    mn072065. I cannot speak for you but since I want to be able to access shares, I have no choice but to use a local account. I hope this problem will be fixed and I can go back to an MS account.
    After pulling my hair out for hours, I finally had a breakthrough that solved the problem for me. We have 4 different brands of PCs, all recently upgraded to Windows 10 Home. Other than file sharing, I found the Windows 10 upgrades went smoothly. I have a Microsoft Account and my wife has a different Microsoft Account. She primarily uses 2 of the PCs and I generally use the other 2 so initially I didn't have both of us authorized to use all 4 PCs. We do however need to use file sharing across all 4. After Windows 10, sharing was completely hosed - some connections mysteriously worked and some didn't. First I turned off password protected sharing on all 4 PCs as other threads have mentioned (Network & Sharing Center / Advanced Sharing Settings / All Networks / Turn password protected sharing OFF). Then I made sure that all 4 PCs had IDENTICAL log on accounts. Each PC now has a LOCAL account called ADMIN with Administrator privileges AND 2 Microsoft Accounts (my MS account and my wife's MS account) without Administrator privileges. The key seems to be having IDENTICAL log ons authorized on each of the 4 PCs. As soon as I did it, all of the file sharing problems cleared up instantly. Important thing seems to be that all networked PCs must have the same accounts with the same user names and passwords (i.e. ADMIN log on identical on each PC, my MS Acct log on identical on each PC, and my wife's identical on each PC). This shouldn't be required, but for some reason it works. Hope this helps.

    Setting identical accounts shouldn't be required and, indeed, aren't required.

    But at least you have a working solution for your network!
