    NETWORK PROBLEM: Network Credentials


    I created a Workgroup for three computers in my house, all three have the same Workgroup Name and all
    three show up when I open the Network tab.

    BUT, when I try to access one of the other two computers, it keeps asking for "Network Credentials".

    Now I Googled "Network Credentials" and got a big can of worms. Is there a simple way I can set up
    "Network Credentials" on all three computers ?

    Or, better yet, how can I remove the requirement to have Network Credentials ? It's only me and my three
    computers.

    I run Windows 10 Pro on all three, two are 64 bit, one is 32 bit.

    Thanks for any help.

    Regards,

    Richard S.

    That worked, I just needed to find where it was. After drilling down several layers in Control Panel I got it.

    Thanks for the tip.
