Can not see files on computers

Recommended Posts

  Running win 10 on desktop and laptop. They both see media devices on each other machine. They DO NOT SEE FILES. I am able to go to file explore and type in \\xxxxx\d\xx and get the files (just read I could do this). How can I get the computers to be seen on the network in the file explore. Not sure if I have work group or home group on either machine.

Hi Bob,

 

If it was connecting through Home Group, then that will explain it , as with one of the recent Creator's updates for Windows 10, they removed Home Group.

 

Best bet is to remap your drives or folders that you wish to share.

 

Here's a bit more about the changes and some ways to work through it:
