    I have no use for Virtual Reality, Holo Lens or 3D Paint or the original Paint. I mostly use Paint.NET and Photoshop for my graphics work what little I do. I would not spend the money it will cost for those glasses and other stuff. I use my PC basically for Browsing the NET, Graphics and Gaming. The majority of what is in RS3 does not interest me, a stable OS would.

    Homegroup removed starting in Windows 10 build 17063

    Homegroup removed starting in Windows 10 build 17063.

    A note about HomeGroup: Easily connecting to and sharing the important pieces of your digital life with those who matter most has never been easier with today’s Modern PCs and the cloud. Whether it’s connecting PCs and printers on your home network via the Share functionality in Windows or using OneDrive to share a photo album of your last vacation, Windows 10 makes connecting multiple devices and sharing content streamlined and simple. And it’s because of that evolution that with today’s build you’ll start to see us retire the HomeGroup service. HomeGroup was terrific for the pre-cloud and pre-mobile era, but today this functionality is built right into Windows 10 and apps. Starting with this build, the HomeGroup service is no longer operational in Windows 10. The user profile used for sharing and the file/folder/printer shares will continue to work.

    Here are recommended alternatives to HomeGroup for you to get the best file-sharing experience in Windows 10 going forward:

    • File Storage:
      • OneDrive is a cloud-first, cross-device storage and collaboration platform for all of the pieces of data that matter most in your life – like your files, your photos, your videos, and more.
      • OneDrive Files On-Demand takes cloud file storage a step further, allowing you to access all your files in the cloud without having to download them and use storage space on your device.

    • Share Functionality: For those who prefer not to use the Cloud to connect their devices, the Share functionality for folders and printers allows you to see the available devices and connect them to and from other PCs on your home network.
    • Easier Connection: No more remembering cryptic HomeGroup passwords in order to connect to another PC. You can now simply connect through your Microsoft Account email address across devices.

    Not surprised, they want you to use OneDrive. That's my take on it anyway. One of the first things I used to do was turn off Homegroup. I was thankful when they stopped turning it on by default. I won't miss it. IMHO, they better up the free storage limit for One Drive if that's where they want you to go.

    You could use the new "Share" feature instead of OneDrive though.

    Is the New Share feature a new feature or just a relaunch of the New share feature we had since around 1983

    Ahhh the annoying homegroup icon which appeared suddenly on your desktop without asking. And trying to remove that in the process was a PAIN! Well, not gonna miss the bugger!

    Is the old networking still usable? I suppose it must be with Pro to connect devices to a domain network.

    I always set up homegroup and onedrive and play about with them, but always fall back on the old networking standard

    Have you tested the new app share with a local account, it will upset a few if you can't

    I haven't done any testing yet for workgroups, but that should still work.

    The Share feature will work with local accounts, but I haven't done any extensive testing with it yet.
