    Cannot View / Change Homegroup Password


    I have three computers I would like to add to a homegroup. One is a MAC (optional) and two are windows 10 laptops. At some point in the distant and long forgotten past, I must have created a homegroup. On the two available computers running windows 10, I have the ability to "join homegroup" but not create one. No idea what the passwords are.

    Regardless of what lap top I'm on, when right-clicking on "Homegroup" in File Explorer, I don't have the option of "View The Homegroup Password". It is greyed out. Ideally, I would like to start fresh. Is this at all possible.

    Forgive my lack of detail. I'm a bit of a nube. And guidance you can provide would be welcome.

    Cheers,

    jb
