  1. Complications with HomeGroup on Windows 10 (Yes, after it was removed)


    Hello, I had a Homegroup set up on Windows 10 before it was removed from Windows 10. Despite this, my computer still is part of the homegroup I set up, even though the settings for it was removed. I also have a Windows 7 computer which I am trying to sync with the Windows 10 computer, and attempting to access the folder I shared requires the Homegroup password which I forgot. As my Windows 10 computer was the one which set it up, I had to go there for the password, except Homegroup was removed.


    Is there a way to
    A) Completely delete the homegroup so I can set up a new network for syncing
    B) Somehow get the homegroup password


    Any help would be appreciated.

    :)

  2. ''GHOST'' homegroup removal from start up

    Hi Russel,

    Utilizing a HomeGroup makes things easier to share. Since you're not using the HomeGroup feature, we suggest that you disable it instead to have your Microsoft Account be the default sign-in on Startup. Follow the steps listed below to disable
    HomeGroup:

    Step 1: Leave the HomeGroup. (This only applies if your PC is currently part of a HomeGroup. If your PC is not part of any group then proceed to Step 2.)

    • Type HomeGroup in the Search bar and press
      Enter
      .
    • Under Other homegroup actions click on the Leave the homegroup option.
    • On the Leave the Homegroup window, confirm that you want to leave by clicking Leave the homegroup.
    • Click the Finish button when the wizard finishes removing you from the HomeGroup.
    Step 2: Disable HomeGroup Services

    You'll need to disable two HomeGroup services to disable the HomeGroup feature in Windows.

    • Type Services in the Search bar and press Enter.
    • Scroll down on the list and look for HomeGroup Listener and
      HomeGroup Provider
      services. Double-click the HomeGroup Listener service to open its properties window.
    • In the Properties window, select Disabled from the
      Startup type drop-down menu and then click OK.
    • Do the same procedure for the HomeGroup Provider services.
    If you need further assistance, just don't hesitate to let us know.
