    Home Networking – Windows cannot access \\Laptop


    Hi,

    For several reasons I had to reinstall Windows 10 on my Laptop and I can no longer access my Laptop from any other PCs on my home network. This feature was working well before I reinstalled Windows. When I open File Explorer and click from another PC on any of the PCs under Network, I can view and share all their contents but when I click on my Laptop icon in File Explorer, I get the message "Windows cannot access \\Laptop. You do have permission to access \\Laptop..."


    I have checked all my printers and file sharing settings and they are all the same. Despite my Laptop permissions are set to Everyone with Full Control, I cannot access its Users Directory.


    Note that my Laptop runs under Windows 10. I also have a desktop running under Windows 10, and two other desktops running under Windows 7. None of the PCs on my Home Network can access my Laptop, but all PCs can view and share content between them, even my Laptop can view all the other PCs. My Laptop is the only one that can't be accessed either via Wi-Fi or Ethernet.


    Can someone provide me a detailed Troubleshooting chart or solution to fix this problem?


    Thanks

    :)

    windows 10 loosing local network access

    Hi,

    Well, frequently, I'm unable to access folders on my laptop (or desktop from laptop).
    Then I run network troubleshooting and windows says me the same thing again: one or more network protocols are not installed and necessary for connectivity. Then I accept the correction and I can access my network until the next time it will fail and will say me the same thing. One day, perhaps 3 if I am lucky.
    IT'S MASSIVELY BORING !! *Smile Home Networking – Windows cannot access \Laptop :)

    Any clue ?
