    Have folder shared but other PCs can't see it without manually typing


    I have multiple win 10 computers with shared folders but i have one PC that when you are on another PC the shared drive does not show up under network. I can type in the address of the shared folder and see it but for some strange reason it will not show up under networks. Yes i know i could just make a shortcut but what setting am i missing?

    :)

    Sharing a folder

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    I appreciate your time and patience to work on this issue.

    To know the username of your computer, please follow the steps mentioned below:

    1. Type Command prompt in the search bar.
    2. Right click on the Command prompt icon and select Run as Administrator.
    3. Type whoami in Command Prompt window and press Enter.
    4. You will find the username of the computer, use the username and your password to access the file from the shared folder.

    However, if the above steps didn’t help, I suggest you to turn off password protected sharing and check if that helps.

    To turn off password protected sharing, please follow the steps mentioned below on your laptop:

    1. Press and hold Windows + R key on the keyboard.
    2. Type Control and click on
      OK
      .
    3. Click on Network and Sharing Center.
    4. Click on Change advance sharing settings.
    5. Under All Networks, click on
      Turn off password protected sharing
      .

    Hope it helps.

    Please reply to this post for further assistance, we will be glad to help you.

    How to stop sharing folder for windows 10?

    Referring to following link, I would like to know on how to stop sharing folder for windows 10.

    I cannot find Stop Sharing option on step 5.

    Use these steps to stop sharing any folder on Windows 10:

    1. Open Start.
    2. Search for Computer Management and click the top result to open the experience.
    3. Expand the Shared Folders branch from the left pane.
    4. Click the Shares item.
    5. Right-click the folder that you no longer want to share and the Stop Sharing option.
    Furthermore, ADMIN$ is found to be Remote Admin under computer management.

    There is no option to stop it as well.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on how to stop sharing and remote?

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions
