    Maybe IP address changed, like if you had Static IP's setup and it got switched to DHCP for some strange reason.
    Network got changed from Private to Public for some strange reason.

    What is the sintax for entering Windows credentials in Windows 10? I want my other computers in the workgroup TECHNET to be able to access Network > Toshiba > c > Users > Lin >

    I assume that I can enter a Username, and of course, a Password, but I don't know how to enter the Internet or network address field exactly. Any help would be appreciated.

    Internet or Network Address: TECHNET

    I am sorry to be so ignorant, but what exactly do I enter in the "Internet or network address" box? Do I then create a random Username and password?

    No, you have to use the credentials of the computer you're wanting to allow access.

    Example:
    On my desktop to allow my laptop ... I use my laptop credentials

    Internet or Network Address: EAGLE-LAPTOP
    Username: eagle
    Password: 12345

    On my laptop to allow my desktop ... I use my desktop credentials

    Internet or Network Address: EAGLE-DESKTOP
    Username: eagle
    Password: 12345

    Note: In my case, I use the same USERNAME & PASSWORD on both PCs.

    I was just reading back and I think the issue your running into, you don't have a password set on you Local Account (as you stated you don't want to use a password). I don't know if you can leave the Password blank in the Windows Credentials, when using Password Protected Sharing .... I have never tried it.

    Note: You can add a password to your Local Account and have Windows Log In Automatically.

    You cant share a users folder even if your on the pc and admin by default your locked out of other users folders. You need to setup a folder to share as that wont have the settings. Yu can set permissions on shares but you also need to have ntfs permissions.

    Its you system but do you understand the risk of not having password anyone that connect in via wireless or other is free to run amuck on all your pc if you get ransomware or virus that would spread like wildfire

    It all started when one day I went to access my Toshiba laptop from my Gateway laptop like I always did, and it asked for credentials. I have a Toshiba running Windows 10, a Gateway running Windows 7, a Viao laptop running Windows XP Pro and a tower computer that I built years ago running Windows XP Pro. I hate to bother you, but how would I exactly go about selling all the credentials up? I will always use the same username and password. I greatly appreciate your patience with me.

    Ivan8ias,
    If all your PCs (xp, 7, 10) currently have the same Local Account Username then great. If not, do NOT change them !!!
    To add a password to each one of your PCs for your Local Account, follow the tutorial and use Option 3 as it will be consistent across all of those different versions of windows.
    Yes, you can use the same Password for all of them. Write it down
    On each PC, affter you set the Password, I would Log Out, then Log In again and make sure the password works
