  2. Unable to setup Homegroup on Windows 10 computer

    Hello Mike,

    We understand the inconvenience you have experienced.

    • Did you try setting up HomeGroup on another computer?
    • Is your computer installed with any third party Antivirus or Online security software?
    Suggest you to check this issue by restarting your computer once, post complete shutdown, to see if it goes correctly. Also ensure that your computer is up to date with Windows Updates.
    Go to Start Button/>Settings/>Update & Security/> Windows Update and click
    Check the updates. If you find any pending updates, then try to install them and see if it makes any difference.

    Follow the below mentioned steps to setup HomeGroup on Windows 10.


    • Right-click on Start and select
      Control Panel from the context menu.

    • Select
      Network and Sharing
      center option, then click on the
      HomeGroup
      at the bottom left fringe on the Network and Sharing Center window.

    • Click
      Create a homegroup
      button. You see the list of files and devices that you would like to share within the HomeGroup.

    • On the drop down menu beside every item set the
      level of permission of each item, then click Next once you are done.

    • You will be taken to the next step where you can see an
      auto-generated password. If the computer need to participate in the HomeGroup then they require this password for authentication. You can also modify the password later. Tap the
      Finish button.
    Now join other PC into this HomeGroup, which you think should participate in the HomeGroup activities.

    Keep us posted if you require further assistance.

  4. How do we setup a homegroup for 2 or 3 computers in home

    Windows can't setup a homegroup on this computer

    Hi Chris,

    To better understand the query, please answer the following questions:

    1. What is the version of Windows installed in the computer? (Home/Pro)

    2. What is the complete error message that you receive?

    If you are using Windows 10 Home, please be informed that you will not be able to create the HomeGroup, however, if you are on Windows 10 Pro, I suggest you to try running the HomeGroup troubleshooter by following the steps below and check again.
    An automated troubleshooter is a tool that can find and automatically fix some problems with your computer. These troubleshooters aren't designed to fix every problem, but they're a useful tool to try because they can often save you
    time and effort.

    1. Press Windows key + R.

    2. Type control and press enter to open control panel.

    3. Click "view all" on the left pane.

    4. Run the HomeGroup troubleshooter and follow the on-screen instructions.

    Let us know the result.
