    Can I have 2 homegroups for 2 of his computers and 2 of her computers.


    My wife and I each have 2 win 10 computers and would like mine to both have the same files and hers to have the same files etc. I don't want mine to interfere with hers and hers to interfere with mine.
    I have no experience with networking and my brain is hampered with prescription chemcals so if this is possible I would appreciate detailed instructions.
    Thanks

    No you cannot create two different Homegroups. All that a homegroup is is a private connection to libraries between 1 Master and 1 Slave. If you want to share folders to specific people, you can set Password restrictions and create a user to access those folders or just foot for a NAS and then you can make it so that you have specific rules for each user.
